Geography is more of a humanities than a science

Sciences generally include Biology, Physics, Maths and in some certain circumstances psychology.

I think(?) most places ask for 2 sciences, so you may need to adjust your choices.

It depends what universities you're looking at, some will class Geography as a science. It is probably best to do something that is definitely a science to be safe if you're unsure

You'd be in a good position if you did Maths, Biology, Chemistry to A2 and then Physics/any other subject of your choice to AS :yep:

I would say Maths is probably the least time consuming and easiest to self teach

LOADS more clearer and accessible resources for A level than on Gcse i found.

Then pharmacy isn't for you. As a pharmacist, you need to know the biology of people's bodies, if drugs are appropriate for their anatomy, which drug affects which part of the body and how, etc. Hospital pharmacists are drug experts who know more about drugs than doctors, and advise doctors on which drugs to use on which patients, needing to know all about their medical/surgical conditions and their anatomy. Retail pharmacists need to know whether the drugs they're dispensing are appropriate in terms of people's anatomy and biology, etc. There is a lot of biology in a pharmacy degree.
