I've decided I want to do biomedical science at university after my upcoming a level year. However I do not take chemistry but take Biology, maths and physics.
I have read that most unis do not ask for chemistry specifically at alevel and allow for biology plus an extra science (chemistry,maths,physics etc). I've also read that biomed contains some chemistry based modules.
Will I be at a big disadvantage when applying to unis without a chemistry alevel?

Great that you're considering Biomedical Science for university
It sounds like you're already doing this but you need to do as much research as possible into the programmes that are available. For example each university will have a course page that should list the modules you will be studying in each year of the course. These will give you an idea of what you will be studying as part of the degree.
For example the BSc in Biomedical Science at Bradford includes modules in biochemistry and you can also specialise in Medical Biochemistry in Year 3 if you want. Having an A Level in Chemistry is useful but you won't be penalised if that's what you're worried about. We will consider candidates with an A Level in Biology OR Chemistry at grade B and above. Read the entry requirements section on our website for more details.
It's also a good idea to attend Open Days where you can speak to staff and students directly. We have an Open Day coming up in October where you can meet our fantastic people and tour some amazing facilities like our new Anatomy and Pathology Resource Centre and Life Sciences Simulation Suite. Scroll down to the facilities menu on our website to see our virtual tours.
Hope this helps
