    You will need maths for any kind of engineering degree.

    For chemical engineering you will need maths, it is the one subject you need everywhere. For chemistry, it depends. Most places are okay without, some places however do want it. I would say for medicine and biomedical science those subjects are fine. Chemistry, Maths and Biology would allow you to do all of your options I believe. (unless you plan on doing chemical engineering at Cambridge- they quite like you to have done either physics or further maths)

    Yes, but what's the point of taking physics without taking maths as well? Physics isn't meant to be a filler subject; you may as well just take maths instead.

    Maths is needed for chemistry at the top unis. Use google.

    You will 100% need maths for chemistry and chemical engineering
