in natural sciences shall I take biology or biochemistry? which is more useful and more interesting. i don't care about plants. I quite enjoyed learning process (respiration, photosynthesis, glycolysis) and I also like the medical side of human biology so which one suits me more?

Professors in my uni says it will be interesting to see biochemistry students if they dont have A level chemistry qualification lol. I haven't met one person that said they are doing biochemistry though. We are all mixed up at the moment; biology, molecular biology, genetics and ofcourse biochemistry etc. I think biochemistry students do couple of extra chemistry classes. I wish I did biochemistry but didn't do A levels chemistry. So doing genetics but most likely will register to molecular biology next year. Talked to my supervisor about it and he suggested I do biology as covers everything that I am interested. Any questions feel free to ask.

It is great at the moment. Not much genetics lectures though. Next term no genetics lectures at all. Mostly cell biology and plant biology. Got 4 exams next week with molecular biology, microbiology, plant biology and genetics. Bricking it lol 😂

As well as the usual academic jobs (research fellow/lecturer etc), you could be making GMOs through breeding, lab technician, clinical trials depending on your past experience. Studying it as a module will give you a boost on the molecular biology side of things. https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...egree/genetics
