    Have you looked into biochemistry, biomedical science or plain biological sciences/biology?

    Biological sciences/biology is good for exploring the different areas of biology as a whole e.g. genetics,animals etc

    Biochemistry would be good if you really like chemistry since it focuses on a molecular level

    Biomedical scienes focuses more on diseases and drugs and understanding our bodies

    Im persolnally applying for Biological Sciences/Biology at 4 unis and Biomedical science at 1 uni since I hate chemistry.
    Also, my A levels are Biology, Psychology and English Lit

    Biomedical Science as a career (biomedical scientist) is for those working in pathology but not as a medical doctor (pathologist). As a degree it is very broad, incorporating haematology, biochemistry, histology, cytology, cell biology, microbiology, pharmacology, drug design, disease mechanisms, but depends on where you apply. To be a biomedical scientist in a pathology lab you need to study an institute of biomedical science IBMS-accredited degree and have undertaken at least a year as a trainee biomedical scientist to obtain your certificate to be able to register with the health and care professions council (HCPC).
    Biomedical Science as a degree is very fun for those who don't want to specialise too early but has quite a few chemistry modules and is varied so you have to learn a huge amount. It gives you good grounding to go on to do further study as you will have a lot of knowledge to draw on. I went on to study a PhD from doing biomedical science.
    Career opportunities are pretty much the same as for any other science degree but your options are arguably broader considering the wider range of modules you study.
