    Do you think it is going to be hard having them on the same day?
    Are you allowed to leave the room to look at some notes after the first one?

    I did it last year and we did them one after another, we had a 5 minute break in between B2&3 to go to the toilet if we wished but we had to go with an invigilator otherwise we were not allowed to leave the room, had to stay in our seats and remain in silence

    I had this in June 2014 (still can't believe AQA haven't sorted the timings out - at least you do unit 1 before unit 2 and 3 because we did unit 2 and 3 first) but yeah, they pretty much collect up the exam papers and hand out the next ones immediately after

    Biomedicine is very much like medicine but without the patient contact element. So a lot of it is very similar but your career would be focused most likely in the labs whereas with medicine you become a doctor

    Biomed is less patient contact, more lab work and a shorter degree
