So when skimming through different university courses, I keep finding that most courses where biology and maths are useful, chemistry and/or physics is also deemed as useful. Is this a problem? Will the other students who study chemistry/physics have an advantage over me?

I would be so grateful if anybody could suggest any courses that see biology and maths as useful, without the other sciences

Thank you.

Hi. With Biology and Math you can easily access all course on Natural Sciences, Biology, Marine Biology, Genetics, Biomedical Sciences, Sport Sciences, Medicine, and probably psychology too. If you are really good in Math and like computers, you may also want to consider computer science related subjects.
Regarding giving an advantage, it's a bit tricky, because different Universities have different requirements. In general, if you aim for a Bio-related course, physics is not indispensable. Chemistry is a bit different, because some Bio-courses require chemistry, for example BSc Biochemistry.

Thanks for that a lot fprischi. I got a grade 8 at GCSE maths and am predicted an A at A-Level. For biology, I got a 9 and am also predicted an A. However, I like the idea of computer science. Even though other students have studied physics and actual computer science at GCSE/A-Level, do you reckon I would still be alright? I have an interest in computers, but I do not actually know a lot about them! I would love to learn about them however. Is that an issue?

I'm a Biochemist, so i admit i got limited knowledge of Computer Science. I had a quick look at my Uni BSc Computer Science and they only need Math A level (https://www.essex.ac.uk/courses/ug00...mputer-science), which make sense because computer science is heavy on Math. Physics is not indispensable, and they usually start from zero on computer science, so computer science A level is also not required.
If you want to know more, my advice would be to talk directly with someone in Computer Science (you can use the chat to talk with computer science students too https://www.essex.ac.uk/life/chat).

You can also see both the Bio-webinars and the computer sciences webinars here https://www.essex.ac.uk/visit-us/can...ks-and-tasters , which may be of help to figure out what you want to study in the future...independently from which University you will chose in the future.
