Urgent help required so I'll quote.
Question: Do you think if I did my personal statement geared towards biomedical science with a little bit shoved in for english, I would get rejected for english (Aberdeen and Glasgow) even though I've got the grades (or more) for the course. And also, would that jeopardise my chances of getting in to biomedical science (Aberdeen and Strathclyde) at all?
What did the admissions people say when you e-mailed, any help?
Personally, I would write it for just the one subject especially since both are really popular and competitive courses. There is no harm in mentioning your passion for english (I breifly mentioned history of art in mine and it did no harm
). It could effect chances however at the likes of Strathclyde but Aberdeen seems to be more lenient. I've also spoken to two friends doing bio med and they are sticking to science related modules which are recommended along with the degree.
With the Aberdeen course, biomed has 80/120 credits already filled leaving just two other module options, however it highly recommends: medical science in sports and exercise physiology and applied sports and exercise physiology to make up the extra 40.
You probably already new that but oh well
