Don't do anything healthcare related if you're motivated solely by money.

Security guards, gardeners, delivery drivers earn more than a majority of community pharmacists and don't need a degree. You want to earn more than most pharmacists - do these!

Also worth reminding that in Community Pharmacy there is no career structure. Extra qualifications and experience count for very little. CP is where 2/3 grads find employment.

Finishing your career more or less where you started is typical. And that also applies to salary.

Please don't make a new thread every time you have a question. Your questions can all be in one thread in one forum... I am sure pharmacists / pharmacy students etc. will be able to find and answer your posts even if they are here.

Threads with titles like "Pharmacy" "Medicine" "Maths" etc. isn't very indicative of what you actually want to ask!

Which degree
As I have said above, don't pick a career solely based on how much you will earn.

Have you looked into what you will do? Do you think you'd actually like being a pharmacist?

And depending on where you live, of course you could afford a mortgage in some parts of the UK as a pharmacist.

£46,788 base salary according to Indeed https://uk.indeed.com/career/pharmacist/salaries. However, most pharmacists I know earn between £55,000 - £75,000. I was on £65,000 as an employee before I became a locum due to family reasons. In healthcare, only consultants earn more than pharmacists. Pharmacists earn way more than nurses, foundation doctors etc.
F1 £18
F2 £21
ST1-2 £25
ST3-5 £31
ST6-8 £37
Cons £60

If you don't mind where you study, then somewhere will probably take you through Clearing with CCC.

I think you need to focus on finding out about each profession and what work you would actually be doing all day.
(It's no good earning £40/45k a year as a community pharmacist if you hate the general public, or are extremely shy, etc.)

If I was you I would do plenty of research on jobs/careers that interest you, and then find out what degree you would need and the entry requirements. Your 6th form careers teacher or equivalent should be able to point you to suitable online resources. It may be worth doing a Myers-Briggs personality type quiz too, that helps match your personal qualities to suitable careers.

As Ecolier has noted, you are asking strings of questions, where you could pretty easily find the answers online.

(Regarding the figures quoted by one poster, they work in an area of the UK with a shortage of pharmacists. those salary figures are not typical of the average across the UK.)
