I attended 4 taster lectures at on Chemistry, and though i really enjoyed it, I was deterred from choosing Chemistry as my choice of degree because of the maths in one of the lectures! I really dislike maths, but the level of maths right now at A-Level in Chemistry I'm fine with. Though i understood the maths in the lecture, it took me back to A-Level maths earlier this year (before I dropped it) and I basically don't want to be around really complex equations and stuff. I really enjoy organic Chemistry & want to go develop and synthesise drugs in my degree, so can someone give me an overview of Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry & Pharmacology, and then tell me which one i'd be best suited to (and entails the least amount of maths)? Thanks in advance!

All those will need maths unfortunately particularly anything medical or pharmacological. It probably is the best idea to do pure chem and then choose options to tailor your degree based on your interests once you have explored them further at uni.
