Hi everyone

I'm thinking of studying biochemistry at uni and I am doing both at A-Level right now.

I got an invitation to be an ambassador for both subjects but I can only be an ambassador for one

So which one is more important in biochemistry? Chemistry or biology?

Thanks

Hey, just giving this thread a little bump in the hopes someone will see it and reply

Have you found University Connect yet? It's super useful for finding other people on your course/at your university!

The actual meat of it is chemistry.

What? It's literally chemistry just in a biological context. Proteins and interactions. Receptors and such and how they interact chemically

I'd say most courses are similar to molecular biology. It disregards ecology ect but includes a lot more on molecular pathways and the chemical reasoning behind processes. I'd probably say more biology though

It does depend what course you are doing e.g. The oxford course is heavily chemistry based but others may have a great biological emphasis (I think bath uni does). I personally love the chemistry

There's no chemical calculations, complex formulas/equations (no Krebs cycle doesn't count), reaction mechanisms at the atomic level, none of that at all. All the stuff about proteins, receptors etc is Biology not Chem. It's pretty much entirely Bio
