Will I have the right A level subjects?

I'm currently taking English Literature and Language, Biology and Chemistry at A level. I'm thinking about a career in drug design and studying pharmacy - or something like that - and I wanted to know whether I have the right A levels. Also would studying biochemistry give me the right qualifications for a career in drug design?
I would have a look at the entry requirements for pharmacy courses, but from what I can see those A-levels would be absolutely fine.

Your chem and bio should be enough, as most sciencey courses ask for chem and then either bio or maths
Those are normally the requirements for pharmacy I can confirm, and probably for biochem asw
Regarding if biochem is the right course for drug design, im not sure sorry

Biochemistry, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, biomedical sciences, pharmaceutical or medicinal chemistry, immunology, genetics, virology, molecular biology, forensic science any of these should be perfectly fine to allow you to apply for the postgrad degree.
Talking about the Alevels, they seem really good as many have already mentioned however most people advise against taking four Alevels as the burden and content is way too much. And when you apply to unis, I don’t know any except Cambridge that favours 4 Alevels, but most would prefer AAA in three Alevels rather than AABB but I am sure you know better about how you are planning to do it so
Good luck:smile:
