It's easier to list the subjects you can't potentially apply to, than what you can (grades notwithstanding).

You wouldn't be able to apply for direct entry to engineering, physics, maths, computer science, or economics, as you lack maths and/or physics; however, these courses are widely available with a foundation year for those who haven't taken those subjects to A-level. You also wouldn't be able to apply to any courses starting a language at post A-level standard (this is mainly French, since most other languages are available ab initio; however, many such courses prefer you to have a language background). You wouldn't be able to apply to history or English literature courses, as they normally require those subjects to A-level, respectively. Some geography courses require A-level Geography, but this varies.

Otherwise, you can apply to virtually any course except those. You could apply to any bioscience course, the majority of chemistry courses, more or less, except Cambridge NatSci, any medicine/dentistry/vet med courses (except, again, Cambridge) and any of the huge number of courses with no specific requirements. Such courses include e.g. law, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, human sciences, archaeology, politics, etc, etc....

For courses directly relating to your biology and chemistry background, look at various bioscience, chemistry, and clinical (i.e. medicine/vet med/dentistry, as well as allied health professions) courses and see what appeals. Earth science related courses can also incorporate elements of those subjects applied to different topics, which may be of interest (and are very relevant in terms of current events and policy/research focuses).

I've also requested this thread be moved to the Applications & UCAS forum, as it is not a relationships post - please do not make posts in the wrong section to make use of the anon feature when it is unnecessary.

In the UK "college" refers to the final two years of high school normally, or more broadly 16-19 education. University study is not referred to as "college" here (unlike in the US). There is a second meaning of college here, pertaining to the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge specifically, but in general (and in the context of this thread) it is as above.
