Well done! I have gotten two lowered offers from QMUL for biomedical science Bsc and biochemistry Msci, and have spoken to many biology students who have all said that the uni is great. On an open day I had a long chat with a lovely woman working on her masters I think it was in a biology subject, who showed me lots of different paths they take, and she later ended up in the news for her study on parakeets in London, which she had walked me through on the open day, so long story short, it appears to be a very good uni. It may just be a case of get through the foundation year then enjoy the proper course, but I do think you'd like it in the end. QMUL is my first choice.

ohhh okay thank u for replying!
i saw that hertfordshire uni has the Bsc Pharmacology course that doesnt require A level Chemistry (as i only did bio and not chem) so if i went there i wouldnt need to take the foundation year, i’d just start from year 1 of the degree

but the Bsc pharmacology degree at QMUL requires A level chemistry which is why i have to take the foundation year if i do go there.

which would u say is the better option- go to herts without taking the foundation yr or QM with the foundation (as QM is higher ranked for Pharmacology and in general is a leading research university)??? pls helpp thank uu
