You can edit this part of /etc/default/rcS:
# Set UTC=yes if your system clock is set to UTC (GMT), and UTC=no if not.

To edit this file, you can do:
$ sudo gedit /etc/default/rcS

Substitute 'gedit' for your favorite editor.

Then reboot, set your BIOS clock and when you go back into Ubuntu, it should be the way you want it.
