In a couple of weeks I have to choose my A-levels for the first time and I don't know what I should choose other than Biology and Chemistry to become a pharmacist; hopefully in the future. Forget Physics, I'm not very fond of it. I think that becoming a pharmacist is an interesting career to be honest and I'm really interested to know if anyone has considered it or not or what A-Levels are needed.

Also, I would really appreciate it if you would advise me on which degree in university is most suitable to become a pharmacist.

Thanks!!

Mathematics. And for a fourth, a language may be useful and a nice change.

There is only one degree to become a pharmacist. Pharmacy.

Biology and Chemistry would be the required A-levels. Other than that, just choose an A-level you'd like to do.
To be a Pharmacist, you must do a Pharmacy degree. You should look at the Pharmacy courses offered by different universities and see if any of them have requirements other than Biology and/or Chemistry.

Thank you so much guys!!!

Also, would the MPharm degree be too hard to start off with in university as an undergraduate course?

I think you have to do an MPharm to become a Pharmacist. I imagine it would be reasonably hard, but not impossible, especially if you're dedicated to becoming a Pharmacist.

MPharm is simply an integrated master's, so you do the bachelor's degree and then the master's degree under the same student finance (as opposed to doing them separately, where you will have to self-fund or pray for funding opportunities when it comes to the master's degree). Theoretically, it's only the final year that's any harder than a standard undergrad course.

Chemistry definately!
Maths and Biology are good combinations to go alongside Chemistry

I'm doing Chemsitry, Maths, Biology, Geography and am hoping to go into either Medicine or Biochemistry

Good luck
