Well, there's the Stamford test on the UCAS site, although it asks loads of questions like "do you like helping people?" and uses those to determine what you could do. Or your careers advisors may have similar programmes on their computers.

yes the stamford test - http://www.ucas.ac.uk/ can be useful - it gives quite a wide choice, but if you have no idea it could be useful...

To be honest, with those A Levels you could take a huge range of degrees, most of which would be good for many different careers. So long as you don't want to become, say, a Doctor or a Scientist, you could do quite a range of things.
I'd try looking in a couple of uni prospectuses as well, because they will often say which A Levels are required for each course. The ones you've listed tend to make me think you'd be suited to one of the Social Sciences (like Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Politics etc), or maybe some Humanities subjects like English.
Though for Economics at Uni most places will expect Maths as well.
