I need help deciding between the two options. There are pros and cons about both options. Biochemistry at Birmingham seems like a good degree at a top university. Pharmacology at KCL seems good because of the location but it is so expensive that my parents are pushing me towards Birmingham. So I need help deciding!

Always go with the course that interests you the most. Don't be blinded by any perception of 'better Uni' - at this level its pretty meaningless. More important is working out which of these two subjects will enthuse you the most for 3 or 4 years and hold your interest, ie there is no point in going to KCL because of any perceptions of 'prestige' if you are just going to get bored with the course.

Well, Birmingham is a lovely campus university and your parents have a point about the cost of living in London. Expect to pay £800 a month rent in London and circa £500 in Birmingham.
