    Considering this course, I've read up on it and it seems like something I might want to do but I have some questions.

    Is it as respected as single science degrees?
    Is it considered a good degree in general?
    Would I struggle as I only have A2 Bio and chem? But I'm willing to work extremely hard.
    As far as I can tell, you pick 3 foundation subjects in your first year and maths& stats is compulsory. I like the look of chemistry, life sciences but nothing else appeals to me. Would I be allowed to pick a physics module in my first year only even though i didn't do it at a level?
    Does it have good career prospects?
    It's either between natural sciences or biochemistry, but which has better career prospects?

    If you meet the entry requirements you'll be fine. The website is the best place to find out what you can and cannot pick. If in doubt email and ask. Please don't worry about what is respected and what isn't. Pick a course that interests you. in terms of prospects, you make yourself employable by what you do during your degree and by getting good grades. The degree or uni alone is not going to make you employable. The website should tell you where grads end up. Otherwise email and ask.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
