So I'm choosing between a science or engineering degree
I'm interested in chemical engineering and also biology but I don't have A level maths to do engineering so I'm considering doing a foundation year
I do:
- Biology
-Chemistry
- Economics
- EPQ
Predicted: AAA
Does anyone have any advice on which degree to choose?
thank you

Which one interests you more? One is applied and one is pure science. Both will give you a load of transferable skills if you don't want to stay in either field.

Well I've always done science? But I feel like science degrees are so common?
I'm considering medicinal or architectural engineering because medicinal has that more science-y link?
I'm just confused on which one to apply for via ucas? Aim high for engineering or just stick with a science?

Thanks

Sorry but I don't really see how one is higher than the other? It sounds like you're a bit confused about what sort of engineering you may want to do if you go down that route so it may be better for you to do a general engineering degree and then specialise.

If biology/science is where your interests lie, do that.
