    Going by you wanting to work in a lab, I take it you either want to do something involving biotechnology or micro-biology, am I right?

    They'll both get you (different) jobs if you work hard. Which areas of biology do you like the most? If you want to work in a lab I suggest you research all the possible areas.

    I'll be reading biology at uni in September

    Also, if you want to know about which will most likely land you in a job, look at the uni employment section of the said uni website (depending where you want to go/end up).
    Cambridge has some 85% of its graduates in a career within six months of graduating. <-- only reason I chose cambridge is because was the first thing on the uni league tables... =)

    If that's what you like, I would STRONGLY advise biology because it goes with the micro and macro systems. =)
    Do a degree you like/enjoy and not one you want to do for money.

    Thank you. The more time I spend searching for informations about those two sciences, the more I want to study biology. But there is one more hard decision, what uni I should choose

    Just saying chose a uni which appeals to you (you want to go there because you want to study there), a reasonable employment rate and do a course you will enjoy (example, people do medicine because they want the money and others because they want to help others and enjoy the subject, the later is the right option, chose the first and you won't like it at all...).

    Of course, I expect as high as I can, but I won't predict anything. It is really hard to pass the exams well in Lithuania. But still, I am working hard. It is summer and I am learning, reading biology. I want that all informations will sink into my head. I don't want to study biology because of money. It is not me. I always wanted something that I can enjoy.

    I don't know what the Lithuanian grading systems like, sorry (I believe it is graded on numbers 1-10 but, that's only because I think I remember someone else in your position making a thread similar to yours).

    So, without knowing the grade entry requirements, I can't help in that aspect because I don't know what the uni will want.
    Example - I don't know how Reading Uni's entry requirements would translate to your grading system...
