    Im in year 9 what options should i choose to become a pharmacist there is
    Geo/ history

    sociology/ rs/ applied business/ music/ hospitality and catering/ ict

    PE/ art and design/ textiles/ drama/ product design.

    and i will choose french

    I don't think it would really matter what gcse's you chose. Definitely do triple science as it would look good for when you apply university. You could apply for sociology but whatever you choose make sure you know that you will enjoy it aswell.

    To study Pharmacy at uni I think the only necessary A-levels are Chemistry and Biology. You can get in to these a-levels with just double science, but I would recommend taking Triple ( I'm assuming you like science since you're already considering a career in pharmacy).

    Otherwise it doesn't really matter what you take! Choose subjects you enjoy/think you will enjoy. And if your school does Year 10 work experience get in contact with some local pharmacies when the time comes to find placements
