Any of those would be fine. None of them are particularly similar to medicine anyway.

It depends on what you mean by beneficial?

I am guessing you heart is in medicine but you don't believe you can get the grades. I suggest you shoot your shot and try your best. You have plenty of time to think of a back-up plan if you don't get into medicine.

Physician Associate if you wanted to work as a junior doctor role.

Reading and UCLan offer it at undergraduate level.

Hi, I'm a student of biomedical science at London metropolitan uni and honestly they all are beneficial in their own ways. I would say Biomed would be better as it is a catchment of all of them including bio, chem, maths etc. so you are learning all the subjects therefore gaining more skills and knowledge. if you decide to do graduate entry med after your degree you will need a minimum of a 2.1 in your degree for most unis. for individual entry requirements for med schools visit the medical school council website it's very helpful! Even if you do not decide to do a graduate entry med there re many job opportunities with a Biomed degree. visit the prospects website (just google biomedical science careers) and they have a long list of all your potential employers and jobs. If you would like more info about the Biomed, biochem, or bio course at LMU please feel free to google us and visit the course sites.

I hope this helps and good luck with whatever you decide to do!

You're talking about a lifelong career vs a 3 year degree. So none of them.

Depends if you mean the content of the degree, or the career following it. Biomed is probably closer degree wise but leads (super generally speaking) to more research based work, whereas if you want to work practicing healthcare with real patients, then something like (for example) dentistry, nursing, physician associate etc. is closer in the day to day if that makes sense. Even pharmacy to some extent. Whereas pharmacology and biomedical science are more research oriented- a step removed from advising people irl if that makes sense
