Maths and humanity with sciencesWatch
Secondly, in my IB options i have to take a humanity (from philosophy, history, psychology, anthropology etc.). Is there a humanity which will work well with biology and chemistry if i do go for a biochem degree? If not i will probably do philosophy or politics.
Any help is appreciated, thank you!
Most bioscience courses are also available with such a foundation as well, incidentally. I would note, in the UK at least however, biochemistry degrees are very rarely "chemistry applied to biology"; they are molecular/cell biology degrees focusing on the foundations of modern molecular biosciences. You will as such cover some chemistry in these courses to support understanding those areas, but you aren't going to be learning detailed reaction mechanisms on most courses, and will be more focused on e.g. metabolic pathways and protein structure and function. If you want to focus on the chemical principles, then you should be looking at chemistry degrees which will normally include a minimal amount of biological chemistry/chemical biology (and many have a wide range of options in these areas to specialise in later, and options to take courses in molecular biology/biochemistry as described above).
For your second science, I would suggest the one you are most interested in and strongest at. If that is physics, take physics; it's still relevant for chemistry generally. As far as humanities go, pick whichever you find most interesting and/or think you can do best in. Consider the humanities option as more a chance to take something complementary to have a bit of a break from all your science work; invariably you will be able to forge links between the subjects, if you are interested and motivated enough for it.
