Firstly you should post it in the correct section on the website, which would be under A-levels.
Secondly are you an international student?
OT it depends which university's you want to apply to. You should definetly take AS level Chemistry and Biology and I would advise you to carry these through to A2, as it is an advantage to have knowledge in these subjects when you begin your course.
If you are looking to apply to cambridge/oxford then your 3rd A2 subject should possibly be in another science (as people with only 2 science A levels are expected to have knowledge equivalent to those taking 3, although it is possible to get in with 2 and on extremely rare occasions only 1).
If you are not looking at applying to these then it could be a good idea for your 3rd subject at A2 to be in an arts subject (although only those with good academic content, such as a language, history, english etc).
If you are not yet sure where your applying, and you could possibly apply anywhere, then the best option would be to take 3 sciences/maths and an arts subject at AS, this means your 3 A2 subjects could be either biology, chemistry + a science or biology, chemistry + an arts subject dependent on you university choiceSecond Year Medical Student at Guys, Kings and St. Thomas Hospital
