Healthcare Science advice

Hi, i wanted to take healthcare science for uni and i want to specialise in cardiac physiology or neurophysiology.
I am planning to take 1 science (biology) for a levels and some unis like swansea only want 1 science with decent grades. (pls tell me if this is a good idea).
I was also wondering if cardiac physiology is better to specialise in than neurophysiology. So if anyone has any experience with healthcare sciences, please reply to this post. Im really stuck.
Thank you :smile:
