I'm just curious, but which of Biological and Physical Nat science is most competitive to get into at Cambridge? Hopefully going to apply in Sep/Oct and am interested in Chemistry , Biology of Cells, as well as Earth Sciences, so I'm deciding which path to go, Physical or Biological.

I'd say they're equally competitive but Biological generally has fewer applicants.

While your options seem more physical overall, it might be a better idea to have a look at the A Levels you take to see which route would suit you better, in terms of going through admissions.

Remember that once you're in, you can switch around NatSci however you like (provided you've got the correct A Levels )

I'm doing Bio, Chem, Maths and Geog, so definitely favor Biological, which is why I'll most likely go for Biological then, because I assume without Physics and Further M I'm probably at a disadvantage in Physical

Thanks for the advice

There's not really a difference, physical tend to get more applicants but usually also have more spaces allocated to 'physical scientists', but just pick whatever you would interview best at, makes no difference after offers are made

Yes, definitely go for the biological route. I was advised to go for the biological route despite having a deeper interest in chemistry (at the time I asked for advice) because I didn't have Physics :yep:

Is anyone applying to or studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge with Biology, Maths and Further Maths as their A-Level options? Do I need Chemistry to be considered seriously? I would like to follow the biological path... does anyone have any suggestions?
