So the university I want to go requires at least 1 A level with 2AS , and for A level I want to do biology but I am not sure how I can do 2 AS math , like how can I divide it? If it's still not clear please let me know! ( also thanks for trying to help)

I’ve never heard of a course that require this. Is it a foundation course? If you do maths then drop it in year 2, you’ll only get 1 AS - it’s much better continuing in my opinion for another a level. Could you give me the link to the uni and the course you want to do?

It's really all about that I want to do AS math beside AL bio so at least if I didn't get a good score to a medical school I would have a second option as engineering instead. Is it clear?

Like I wanna do only Alevel biology but at the same time I'm afraid if I didn't get a good score to enter medicine I wouldn't have a second option to do engineering as I have not done any As or Al math is there anything I can do about it?

No medical school afaik will accept an applicant onto their course with only 1 A-level. In fact, I believe it will lead to an automatic rejection. Also, if you want to do medicine and something else, pick something else. A career in medicine is like a lifestyle and is a real commitment.

To do any undergraduate courses, all unis need an offer of 3 A level grades - no as levels unless you apply for foundation. I don’t know how you got this information you only need 1 alevel and 2 added. It’s beneficial for you to also do chemistry because some medical schools require chemistry for it so your options are more varied. If you want a second option to do engineering, you will need A Level maths, not AS maths, and physics - although there are some that are flexible in the subject requirements but very few. You can’t just do a level biology by itself because that’s not enough. You also need to do UCAT test for medicine as well. Could you go into further detail what your problems or concerns are because it’s difficult to understand what you are trying to say? Sorry
