choose which unis you'd be interested in and see which subjects they require - I've seen unis asking for different subjects; some prefer chemistry, others want you to take physics, so choose your unis first and then see which subjects you need.

Do not drop Maths!
Most Unis require it and without Maths you will really restrict the Unis you can apply to.

KCL - AAB including Maths and Physics - https://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/undergra...gineering-beng
Aston - BBB including at least one subject from: Maths/ Physics/ Further Maths/ Design Technology/ Engineering Science or Electronics - https://www2.aston.ac.uk/study/cours...ring-beng-meng
Kent - ABB including Mathematics plus two other science subjects (preferably Biology or Chemistry plus Electronics/Physics/Computing).https://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/under...al-engineering
Birmingham City : 96 points including C in Maths : https://www.bcu.ac.uk/courses/biomed...g-meng-2019-20

I'd always recommend keeping Maths and Physics as they compliment each other and both are necessary for engineering. In fact I'd say keep all 4 as they do compliment each other so it's less extra work than you'd expect. Maths helps Physics (and Chemistry to a lesser extent), Physics helps Chemistry and Maths, and Chemistry helps Biology.

If you have to drop one then I'd probably drop Biology based on that as it's less useful than you'd expect for a bioeng degree, particularly if you're not at one of the few unis which does tissue engineering.
