Biomedical Sciences will have Biophysics, Biochemistry and Maths in it. It's essentially a degree covering various branches of medical science from a biological perspective, which will involve all 3 sciences and maths.

Why not just do a Biology degree and pick medical focused modules?

Physics content varies between universities, though if QM doesn't insist on Maths A Level or prefers applicants with it like say UCL does, then the physics content might be minimal

I went to QM. There's a teeny tiny bit of biophysics in first year but it's not significant at all. There's also a maths module in first year and a biochemistry module in all 3 years.

I have a learning disability that means I struggle with mathematics. I’m on track for a first class honours. It’s not as bad as you think. It’s mainly algebra.

Hey I wondered if you have any advice... im thinking of doing a biomedicine degree, but my maths is not great, I can barely understand calculus and I would say that is my top level, do you think I would be okay? All the other stuff im good with stats, algebra, trig etc
