Both courses interest me and I don't wanna make a decision fully on which one yet, so I'm planning on maybe applying for biochem at 3 unis and geology at 2 others? Could I write a competitive personal statement for both?

Probably not, they don't seem to respond well to lack of commitment and your word limit is tight.

How about if I apply for biochem and biology? Could I do that? And then if I decide I really wanna pursue geology I could probably easily switch from biology to geology?

It's less of a concern, but still not considered ideal tbh. I'm no expert, but i've never seen a multipurpose personal statement recommended. You'll likely find folk here with far better advice/experience of writing them than me.

Surely it would be easier to switch from chemistry to geology and geology isn’t really related at all to biology. That one would be a waste if you want to transfer. You’d likely have to go through UCAS again
