So, I'm planning to do Biomed at Uni and I'm just wondering whether it's alright to do it without chemistry and just biology, maths and physics. I checked the entry requirements and some Uni's offer the course without chemistry but some don't offer it. Is there a reason for that?

If biochemistry course is the course you wanted to do then apply to those universities that don't require chemistry but most universities do expect chemistry if you want to do biomedical science but its up to you. You would then have to focus on showing your intreats in the subject through your personal statement.

Hia!

from what Ive seen chemistry helps you out with a course like biomed but it isn't essential, hence why some unis (ports and UEA for example) don't require chemistry for a biomed. Considering your other subjects being maths and physics which equally demanding as chemistry you shouldn't have many issues picking up the chemistry in a biomed degree and biology Alevel offers some basic chemistry which is a good stepping stone.

Hope this helps!
