I don’t think you need to take a level maths with chemistry but being good at maths will help

There's plenty of maths in A level chemistry, but it isn't particularly hard chemistry. If you are a good GCSE maths student you should be fine.

I’m most likely going to get a b in maths in my gcse will that be good enough?

Most likely that would indicate your maths will be strong enough.

If you can use good logic, rearrange mathematic equations, and are comfortable using the logarithm functions on your calculator you should be fine.

absolutely NOT. Maths A Level is NEVER used in chem, other than the odd drawing a tangent which is actually GCSE. AVOID MATHS, IT'S HARD AND USELESS.

Nah you don’t need a level maths. I only got a B at GCSE maths and the chemistry maths is honestly super easy. It’s all mechanics. It’s the Biology maths that they don’t tell you about (stats 😭😭). If your good with equations you’ll be fine at chem maths.

Maths is the basis for science, so no ,chemistry is 'more' useless than maths in my opinion and provides essential tools for scientists, especially in chemistry and physics.
