I didn't sit Biology for my O levels, However after the exams i figured i wanted to do medicine and decided i should take up Biology in AS
My O level results are 4A's 1A* and a C
I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths at 6th form. So my question is what are my chances of getting in to medical school if i end up getting A for Biology and my A level result being A*AAA

A in Biology is not a problem.
Plus if you look at the entry requirements of some medical school you will see that biology is not required to apply. For most chemistry is the only compulsory subject you have to take.

I did get an A* at O levels for Chemistry,
This is very reassuring to hear from someone else as i was quite nervous.

2 units in and i find Biology to be alright, So i guess O level Bio is not that important to even continue with A level biology.

Doing O level Biology gives you a simple outline of A level biology, but doesnt go into real detail.

Also, do you think my O level results are ok? since i have done only 6 subjects, will i be at a disadvantage compared to other candidates?
I plan to apply to some US uni's as well.

Your results are fine, but now focus on doing well in your A-levels.
