    Your subject choices are fine! Although, if maths is an issue, you can drop it to SL without it being much of a problem as it is A LOT harder than SL maths.

    Thanks. However do good medical institutions accept Maths SL? And is Economics or B&M better?

    Maths HL are not required but are always good to have. And Economics is definitely much better than B&M, unless you plan to start your own business.

    If you want to study economics or any of the sciences then maths SL is a must but if you want to do arts, languages or any other degree that does not rely on maths then just take maths studies. Maths SL is not easy and if you have no need for it then there really is no point in taking it unless you enjoy being challenged.
