    Take Maths. If by chance you aren't interested in pharmacy, then you will have other options also. Even though, if you all take Maths, it will help you, because you would have to study it again in B Pharmacy. Also, if you plan MBA after B.Pharmacy, maths will be of great help.

    No, you have to choose PCB in class12th. You can choose among:
    D-pharmacy (Diploma in pharmacy)
    B-pharmacy (Bachelor in pharmacy).
  • You don’t have to take maths. You can take biology and read chemistry.

    If you are interested in Pharmacy stream, then maths is not needed, if you choose Maths, as your main subject, you are unable to take Pharmacy. So, choose the PCB in +1 to go to Pharma field.

    Hello,
    Take Maths as an additional subject, so that it doesn't add up with your aggregate score. All the best. If you find this helpful do give an upvote.

    If you want to go for pharmacy, biology is very important. There is no need to study maths.
