I am a gap year student so I have AAB with the B in Chemistry ( +A* in EPQ) and I am not sure whether to apply for Biology or biochemistry. I enjoy biology but I hate anything to do with ecology, the environment and plants. I do like chemistry but I am worried if a course has a lot of chemistry that I would not be able to keep up with it. Does anyone know of any courses which have chemistry but not too much? I am currently thinking of UCL (I know its higher than my grades), Kings, Birmingham, Warwick, Southampton, sussex or leeds any other suggestions with courses? Thanks in advance

Its sees that you like Human Biology but not the bit about plants. Don't do Biochem if you don't like chem, as it is basically all chemistry, but applied to living organisms.
Have you looked at Human Biology courses?
Birmingham has one you might like the sound of.

You really have to do your own research with this. Biochem courses aren't all chem as stated above. I did biochem and we had a lot of options so I ended up doing a good mix of stuff for the first two years and mainly bio for my final year.
