Economics > Business
Maths and Physics are great. Economics would be a good addition if you like Business.
IT/Computing is bad, high ranked uni's will dislike it comparative to another science, essay subject or even Further Maths...
Further Maths is great!
Edit: Butthurt business people on a neg train, gg

I'd say take Chemistry. Chemistry is great, everyone should take it.
Edit: Oooh. Negged. I'm hurt by your lack of love for Chemistry. It was only a flippant remark. Although I do love Chemistry. What's not to love?

Physics, English and Maths at Advanced Higher, and then take another subject as well. God, I sound like such a subject snob, don't I? I apologise. I'm not saying they're stupid subjects, I'm really not. But those probably would be your best bets. Have you looked at prospectuses (prospecti?
) because often the universities will tell you which subjects are "preferred", which means you should take them if you want to maximise your chances. I think Cambridge actually published a list of subjects that would make them more likely to give you an offer. Of course, you could always drop the extra subject, 3 Advanced Higher's isn't exactly fun, since you'd have an investigation and a dissertation to do if you took those subjects. And don't expect Maths to be easier because it doesn't have coursework, because you have to keep working on it all the time in order to understand it. I sound so pessimistic, but it's perfectly do-able. I know people doing four advanced highers (one of them is doing an extra higher as well) and they haven't keeled over and died yet.
But yes, look at the uni prospectus for this year to get a better idea of what they're looking for. No point taking subjects if they won't help you.
