Is anyone applying to or studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge with Biology, Maths and Further Maths as their A-Level options? Do I need Chemistry to be considered seriously? I would like to follow the biological path... does anyone have any suggestions?

You don't need chemistry, however given how Cambridge discuss their entry requirements on their webpage linked below, I would suggest that if you don't have either chemistry OR physics you are in a much weaker position in terms of your application.
I imagine you would still be considered seriously but given how competitive the process is, you would probably be less likely to get a place than someone who offered one of the more preferable combinations.
Also if you don't have chemistry or physics, you are more limited in what modules you can study during your first year which would be something to consider.
It might be helpful to look on the websites of the colleges you would be looking at applying to as some have even more specific requirements on subjects and it may be that you would have a better chance at a particular college which focuses on maths, for example.
I hope this helps.
