for my a levels, i want to do:
chemistry
biology
maths
politics

would it be better to change politics to further maths/physics, or do universities like oxbridge not care what i choose as a 4th subject?

4th subject shouldn't matter too much as long as you have Biology, Chemistry and maths then all medical schools will be open to you but if your doing maths then physics could overlap with mechanics modules so maybe consider physics instead

Some medical schools give preference to applicants with a non scientific 4th AS therefore it could put you at an advantage for certain medical schools.

Your current choices are absolutely fine. A number of medical schools don't even count further maths as a separate subject.

Some unis such as Oxford only want 3 good A level grades, rather than 4 average grades

By average I mean it's better to have A*AA instead of AAAB, or even AAAA if the requirement is A*AA and the 4th A level isn't related, e.g. drama

All universities would prefer three good A-Level grades, rather than 4 average grades.
