    They're ok.

    The general rule for pharmacy is one A-level must be in chemistry. The second should be another science from biology , maths or physics. Ideally, the third should also be a science.

    So maybe maths or physics is would be better than Geography or Psychology. But it's up to you. It's important you do the subjects you are good at and enjoy to maximize your chances of the best grades.

    Drop Geography or Psychology and pick up maths, even if you hate it like myself, it's greatly beneficial. At UCL they make you take compulsory maths classes for subjects like chemistry if you didn't do A level maths, which tbh is a crapload of work alongside your degree..

    Physics I can handle, maths I just cannot do.
    What could I change, given maths isn't an option for me?

    FYI, I really want to get into Manchester Uni.

    My friends just got into Manchester for Pharmacy with Chemistry, Biology, Spanish and an Art AS Level.

    Youll be fine with those choices. Chem deffo, bio is a plus. Then just do what you enjoy/want to do.

    Maths isnt needed at Manchester.

    I got a grade B for GCSE Maths, A for AS Maths though. You might have to take additional Maths classes at uni if your degree is fairy quantitative, given that it is Pharmacy then it probably will be.
