These are my IGCSE options. Are they good choices or should I change?
IGCSE English (1st or 2nd language tbd by teachers)
IGCSE Business Studies
Are these good choices?
I chose triple science because I love science and I would like a career in the Sciences/Engineering. I chose French because I am very good at it and I know that a language is very important and respected by unis. I chose ICT because I know that soon everything will become computerized and that a good knowledge of ICT will put you at an advantage. I chose Business because it is an easy and interesting subject that won't need a lot of effort.
I know that Business and ICT aren't respected A-Levels, but unis don't look at IGCSE's. So, if I enter A-Levels, I will take Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology/English/Further Maths. So it will be a respected set of A-Levels. If I go into IB then I will take business as a Group 3 subject just to boost my points.
Is this a good, balanced set or should I change?
Any comments are appreciated.

It's absolutely fine.
Unis don't care much about IGCSEs so just do what you enjoy.
A piece of advice, though... ICT is a pretty boring subject, imo. Don't take it because you think everything will be 'computerized'. But if you like it, then go ahead.
Btw, where are you sitting your exams? Where are you from?

I enjoy ICT and I excel in it. I will sit my exams in 2013 and I come from Egypt, which is why I do IGCSE's and not GCSE's

Avoid ICT like the plague. It is useless and boring as hell. The content is easy, motivating yourself for coursework/revision in such a brain-dead subject isn't. You'd be much better off with Geography or History. Possibly also Economics instead of Business? I know it's better at A Level, not sure at GCSE/IGCSE.
