Do number 2.You need biology and chemistry for most medical schools,if you don't do chemistry you'll be limited to where you can apply for medicine.

Any combination involving Biology and Chemistry is fine. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. It'd be better if you got A*A*A in Bio, Chem, and some other sub you genuinely enjoy than A*A*B in the same with Maths, espcially if OP doesn't like maths. And no there is no secret requirement for Maths.

i understand that you need bio and chem but is maths a necessity as well. if i take option 1 will it limit my options or is it on par with option 3

Nah Maths isn't a req, but Bio and Chem are (some req Bio, some req Chem, but having Bio and Chem will probably maximise your odds)

You don't need to do maths,you can do economics instead if you want to.Biology,chemistry and maths is a popular combination among people wanting to do medicine though but if you feel like you can't get an A in maths at least then do something else.
