So I was on the university of bath website and under their personal statement section they said explain why you want to apply to biomedical science and not biomedical sciences, this whole time I thought it was the same degree, does anyone know the difference? I would really appreciate an opinion on this, thank you

Sounds like a typo to me. Maybe they meant to type why biomedical science and not biological sciences/medicine? As far as I'm aware the only difference between biomedical science and biomedical sciences is the letter s.

That's exactly what I thought, haha I agree but I went on UCAS and realized that different uni's call it different names so it's quite confusing whether the course is actually different, it looks exactly the same to me :/ but thank you

They may be talking about accreditation of the degree. An accredited biomedicine degree allows you to work as a biomedical scientist in the nhs (etc) upon graduation and they probably want people applying who actually want this degree. Rather than a more standard biomedical sciences degree which many pick with the intention of doing medicine afterwards.

That's the only difference I can think of.

Oh right thank you that makes sense I guess, so is biomedicine, biomedical sciences and biomedical science all the same degree? How can you tell if a degree is accredited? To be fair I might want to do medicine after also, but I'm not sure thanks

They should specify on their prospectus if its accredited. TBH I am not sure, there may be a lot of similarities in modules taken, but it will all vary uni to uni anyway.
