Biology at university? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am going to start my as levels next year and am curently down to do maths, biology, spanish and art. If i did maths and biology at a level, would it still be possible for me to study biology or summat biological at university, or would they require chemistry also? At the moment i am not sure weather to do biology or psycology at university and for psycology you only need maths and biology so i was wondering if chemistry was really a must for biology at university?

    Sorry this is so long!

    Chemistry would help a great deal.

    I'm doing Biology at university - it helps a great deal to have A level Chemistry. I have an AS in it, and still find parts of it difficult. However, it's not vital in many places, although preferred. Even if you don't have it, there will be lots of people on your course who have done it and able to help you. You can also choose universities depending on the type of biology course, lots don't have much chemistry in at all.

    Chem would defo be a good idea, if only to make the biochem make sence!
