you can if you wish. you'll need to enter yourself for the exam at an exam centre (i think)- google to find the one closest to you.

does that still count as the core science? and would the exam need to be single science biology? and also would that mean i have to learn different content or does the cgp revision guide have it all?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'Core Science'. There is no absolute requirement to do any Science at all so just Biology is fine. (For jobs which require a GCSE C/4 or above in a Science GCSE - e.g. to be a primary teacher - Biology is fine.)

The difficulty taking GCSE Biology (or any other Science GCSE) is that the centre where you take the exams has to confirm you have done the required practicals. If you haven't got a centre willing to say this (e.g. they might because you'd done them all before you started being home-schooled) then you may need to take IGCSE Biology instead https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...logy-2017.html as it doesn't have this requirement. Books and guides available here https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=igcse+b...f=nb_sb_noss_1 (make sure you get ones for 9-1 Biology, not the older specification)
