I've just got my offer for medicine in cambridge confirmed (Caius) but now am having second thoughts on whether or not it's for me, not because I don't want to do medicine but because I realised my favourite subjects at school were physics and math.
So my question is, is there any room for math in the medical course (i.e. mathematical modelling of biological processes/disease)?
Also, I have quite a big interest in synthetic biology, is there (in a current students opinion) any way that after the third year one would have sufficient knowledge in biology/chemistry to do a post grad course in systems/synthetic biology?
Finally, would it be possible to switch to natural sciences immediately upon arrival (if it makes any difference I would probably do chemistry, physics and biology of cells)?
Again, just in case it makes any difference I did the IB, with Higher level (equivalent to A2) math, physics and chemistry and biology at standard level, with 7s in all and 43 total.
Thanks for your time, any help would be appreciated.
