i think it's more important that you are choosing subjects you enjoy because it's hard to stay motivated when you're studying subjects you don't like, especially at A-level. Biology does open pathways but if you wanna go down the medical route, a lot of uni's require Chemistry to go along with it. that being said, there are courses you can get into with Biology & Psychology since Psychology is considered a science. these two subjects definitely link together because i study both and there are certain topics that you come across in both subjects. do you know what you want to get into? what you want to do in the future?

I did choose them because I was interested in them, geography was absolutely certain for me no doubts, and then psychology I was interested in, biology was sort of the subject to replace economics since I managed to get an 8 and it was my favourite science. Tbh I’m not too sure what I wanted to do but I decided to not go for anything like medicine or something with biochem involved, so I wanted to make sure I was doing subjects that I enjoy but could still get far into a career and I am managing the workload so far, thank god, because they’re definitely hard but interesting subjects. I was hoping to do something with either geography or biology and was worried about me not doing chemistry would affect it. Thanks for responding

that's good that you chose enjoyable subjects! glad to hear you're managing it well. & since you definitely do not want to go down the medical route, i wouldn't worry about not doing Chem. you will definitely still have many opportunities available for you, especially as like i said, Psychology is considered a science. i'm uneducated when it comes to Geography since i don't do it but you will have the time to look into what courses you want to do so don't worry.
