    I'm currently doing Biology Chemistry, Physics and Maths. I need Chemistry and Maths as the core of my A-Levels for what I want to do at Uni. I want to keep my options over so the two types of courses I want to do are:

    1. Medicinal/Pharmaceutical Chemistry or Chemistry for Drug Discovery.
    2. Chemical Physics

    I don't need Biology for Medicinal/Pharmaceutical Chemistry or Chemistry for Drug Discovery but I obviously need Physics for Chemical Physics.

    What should I do? Drop Biology or keep it to along Chemistry, Physics and Maths?

    From what you've said you don't need Biology for any of the courses.. so perhaps it is worth dropping, just to ensure that you do that little bit better for having less of a workload and more time.
