    Hello , I am year 12 ALevel science student who hasdon AS level exams in Biology,Chemistry Maths and English literature.I want to apply for 2015 university entry but The problem is I am stuck between studying chemistry or Biomedical science.My goal is to work in the pharmaceutical industry or try for Graduate entry medicine

    I am currently considering 2 chemistry course and 3 Biomedical course but I worry that my personal statement will come across as confusing and not good enough.I have done research for both courses in terms of entry requirements,job prospects ,module choice ect.But still find it difficult!

    Ideally I would like to apply just for the one course but I guess my main question is are chemistry and Biomedical science to different to write in a personal statement? :confused:

    Apologies in advance !! Any advice will be invaluable

    You are right. You will have to decide in the end, so take the time to decide before you start and make a properly targeted application which will stand a better chance of succeeding, because otherwise, you will sound both uncommitted and uninformed about the nature of the course. Try writing two separate ps, one for each course, and see if that helps you clarify in your mind which one interests/suits you most.

    As above, make a decision -- make a decision.. An admission's tutor can spot a non-tailored statement coming from a mile off...

    You can send a quick email to the department to see if they accept a second personal statement.
