I just finished my IGCSE exams. I would like to do Forensic Science but I only took Chemistry and Physics (sciences) in O - Level, no Biology.is it possible to do Biology at A-Level and will I be able to get into a university ( to do Forensic Science) if I didn't do Biology at O-Level but I did in A-Level?

I was curious as to whether Forensic Science courses actually required Biology (as you question seems to imply) - so I checked a few at random.

University of Cumbria's "BSC (HONS) - FORENSIC SCIENCE" requires, "A-levels: BBD-BBB to include Applied Science; Biology; Chemistry or Physics at C or above" (details here).

University of Kent's "Forensic Science - BSc (Hons)" requires, "BBB in 3 subjects including Chemistry or Biology" (details here).

Plymouth Marjon University's "BSc (Hons) Forensic Science" requires, "Three A-levels at grades BBC and above to include a Science Subject, preferably Chemistry or Biology but other sciences are also considered" (details here).

University of Winchester's "BSc (Hons) Forensic Science" requires, "104-120 UCAS tariff points, an A Level A*-C pass in Biology or Chemistry" (details here).

Note that none of these require Biology; they're happy with Chemistry and in one case Physics. Were you targeting a particular university which does mandate A level Biology?
