    Hi I'm an AS student doing biology, physics, chemistry and maths. Obviously I love science overall but my main interests are: genetics, evolution, zoology, quantum physics and astrophysics. I keep trying to choose between them but it's very difficult because I keep changing my mind. I've had a look at the course and I like the idea of mixed sciences. I'm having a hard time choosing which ones to do though.

    The thing I'm not sure about is which options would be best for me. If I choose a mixture of sciences (for instance evolution and behaviour, materials science and physics), will that give me a worse chance later down the line. If I decided to continue down a biological route would I be at a disadvantage to someone who did all three sciences.

    So at the moment the ones I'm tempted by are cell biology, evolution and behaviour, physiology, materials science, chemistry and physics. Also how strict are they about changing and how many decided do they expect you to be if you get to interview stage.

    I'd just like to know what everyone else is thinking and if anyone who is currently at Cambridge has any advice that would be great.
