I'm sorry to say that you cannot become a doctor with no Chemistry at A level. It is an absolute requirement at every single medical school.

If no sixth forms are allowing to take chemistry (which is compulsory for medicine) carry on with your chosen subjects, apply for medicine with a foundation year which you may meet the requirements of by choosing the wrong combination of a levels but you must meet additional criteria too

For medicine you would looking at studying: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Psychology

If you don't achieve your intended results which I would imagine would be AAAB then you can get into a medicine foundation year.

Right, so if I was you I would do biomedical science. You need to do biology, maths and physics to say get into Birmingham

How have you done in Physics? If you've done good in that, do it instead of Business or sociology. It opens up more options for you.

With just biology, the options are a bit low. Research scientist?
