I'm thinking of going into medicine or industry with chemsitry or possibly biochemistry. So what a levels should I take ideally when I say industry I mean working with chemicals/making them or research for good pay. I was thinking Chemistry, biology and physics or maths for a levels are these ok? And am I right about my understanding of industry.

Those are good options if you want to go into biochem. Physics isn't really needed.
For medicine however, I think uni's don't want the 'closed-mindness' of 3 sciences and maths. Maybe add a humanity or arts subject somewhere there. Geography and Psychology go well with sciences aswell

As long as you do biology and chemistry you are fine for all those options (although a couple of unis may prefer a 3rd science/maths for chemistry or biochem, check the ones you are interested in). For medicine you just need a 3rd that you can get an A in, although UCL at least is very open about their preference for a non-science contrasting subject.

That's not true - only UCL say that they prefer a contrasting subject and even then, I've heard the preference is small.

OP: Either Psychology or Physics would be fine as a fourth.
