Where are you studying? If you're in the UK, I would note most courses don't have "majors", that is just the subject the degree is in, and the terminology is confusing. For courses elsewhere in the world, it will vary a lot; this forum is mainly used by students attending UK universities and schools, so most advice will be tailored towards those areas.

If you're studying in the UK and want to change course, I would suggest contacting the university you're at to discuss your options. Some universities may expect you to get e.g. a minimal pass in first year, or a 2:1 overall, or something else. With those two subjects however you would definitely need to be starting again in year 1, and you will need to meet the standard entry criteria (presumably A-level Biology and Chemistry).
