Is there a specific career path you're interested in?

Then I'd go with Biology to have a greater range of opportunities later on (e.g. going into different fields like geology, marine biology, etc...) - whilst doing Biomed focuses more on the cellular levels in the human body + it's functions; Meaning would expose you to less of the geographical side of things.

I recommend taking a look into some Universities' degrees on Bio and Biomed - look into their specifications and see which one you'd enjoy learning best! It's better to pick something you will be motivated to revise overtime.

I wish you all the best - good luck! :biggrin:

There’s loads of competition in the field of biology, making it hard to find work in some areas! 🥲
