Hello! I want to know if maths, chemistry & physics are enough for pharmacy/medicine. My school allows me only to take 3 classes (enormous number of hours are languages).

possible but you're making it difficult for yourself for no reason. biology is a better choice for medicine

I would recommend Biology instead of physics, only because it's more relevant to pharmacy/medicine than physics is. Some universities might also require biology and chemistry for degrees in medicine, so it's probably best to choose chemistry, biology and a third A level.

I am thinking about studying pharmacy/chemical engineering/computer science. And I enjoy maths the most. But I know that I would like to work as a doctor more than mathematician.

I have 10 lesson. Biology (4); Maths (4); Chemistry (4); Physics (2). That’s why I can’t take biology, chemistry & maths.

It may be best to drop one of the others then. If you want to become a doctor, you really should study Bio

physics is required for a lot of engineering courses, bio + chem is required for pharmacy/med, maths is a good third subject in general. i recommend choosing bio just so you have more flexibility. whilst a lot of engineering require physics, they will say ''second science'' which is interchangeable with bio/chem/maths/FM

if you take bio chem and maths, then i believe you can choose to do computer science or medicine at university

The following page will give you the facts about what A-levels you need to apply for medicine:

No idea about Pharmacy, but you can hopefully work out a sensible strategy.

Thank you very much! Now I am sure I will go for Maths, Chemistry & Physics. Because I know that I need to be in the class to understand them. Biology is for me all learning by heart. I do not need to apply to the best medical school. I will surely apply to some of those where biology is not required.
