i am conflicted between doing biological sciences and biochemistry
i am very interested in doing genetics and cellular biology.
in biosci, i get to do all these things, plus how organs function and coordinate and stuff . i also quite like the idea of being able to hone in with the cellular and the molecular basis of life, however, im not quite sure that i want to do as much of it as would be required in biochemistry
also, in the subj. of career prospects, how different would the two be compared to each other?

Look at different uni course break downs, some biochem courses offered do run modules in genetics and cellular biology.

As for career, if you want anything lab based as a career biochem will almost certainly have more lab time than biological sciences (did at my uni anyway).

As for other careers, I don't know personally. Have a look on the prospects website to give you some ideas.

what course did you do, and which uni?
i have looked at the website, and the prospects of both course appeal greatly to me. hence my dilemma between the two .

There are plenty of universities that allow you to switch your life sciences specialism after the first year. So you could start with molecular biology and switch to biochem if you felt that suited you more.
