    Well, P.E isn't very respected, but the others seem to be fine for it.
    Maybe drop P.E?

    Which uni is it? Don't some unis blacklist certain subjects? I'm not sure if PE is one of them, but I'd suggest sticking with Biology. Even if you can get in with PE, Biology will help with the course more.

    And try to type properly please.

    If they require two science you'll have to continue both at A2 because AS is only half an A level

    I would assume chemistry and biology are a must for any pharmacy related subject? Biology would be much more useful than P.E.

    So why ask us? They know best :confused:

    Although did they say if you'd be disadvantaged? Because they might favour someone with Chem, Bio and Maths over Chem, PE and Maths.

    No, Maths is counted as a science subject.

    Hmm in that case I'd strongly advise you to do Biology. Pharmacy can be quite competitive anyway, do you really want to take the risk?

    I'd advise dropping PE.

    Chemistry, Biology and Maths is a perfect combination for applying for Pharmacy.

    You should be OK doing this. Most just ask for 2 sciences and a third subject that can be related or not! Also, P.E. actually has a bit of human bio, anatomy and physiology etc, so it is still related! (I'd say!) Even if it was seen as unrelated, I was told that as long as you can explain why you picked it/why you're interested in it then there's no problem! I've applied with 2 sciences and sociology and I've had no problems!

    I know that if you applied to brighton that they wouldn't accept your P.E. A level, as UCAS points....so be wary of that!

    Personally I suggest that you drop P.E. while you can...

    I'd say not to bother with P.E and keep bio (even to only AS). And pick an unrelated (non-science) subject as well, like economics or history, to show breadth of knowledge.
    Good luck!
