I'm in year 13 and have an AAA offer for Biochemistry at Imperial as my first choice but I am thinking about changing to Chemistry. I think I can get A*A*A (in Maths, Chemistry and Biology respectively). With this in mind do you think I would be able to change course to BSc Chemistry on results day?

I would email them before results day to ask. Biochemistry is in the Life Science department and (at least when I applied) didn't interview, while Chemistry is in the Chemistry department and does interview - which may make it harder to change between the courses.

If there are still spaces on the course and if they would be happy for you to swap over, you will probably need to attend an interview - it's better to let them know now so there is time to sort everything out. If you can't change then you could also ask about transferring to Chemistry after the first year.

You'll have to contact and ask them. This is because the places at Chemistry could be full so it's a 50/50 chance of you moving to Chemistry. Only they can give you an accurate answer. It could also be harder to move considering the circumstance.

1st Year chemist here. Friend of mine transferred from biochemistry to chemistry at the end of term 1. Might be cause our course might not have been full at that point. But there is hope.
