Hey sarahussein604!

I am a second year pharmacy student and I studied biology, chemistry and psychology at A-level.
The entry requirements for most unis are chemistry and one of biology, maths or physics.
So yes you can take those A-levels if you wish to!

However I would say A-level biology has helped me a lot during the course, as we learn about cells and body systems etc. So having the A-level knowledge does give you a head start.
Although the content is covered again during the degree it will be a lot harder to understand/teach yourself without a biology A-level.

I hope this helps!

Biology definitely helps, Chemistry too. But you could do some wider reading if you don't want to learn it for 2 years
