    im not sure what qualifications are need for advertising but I'm sure art woul be good, so would graphics defiantly, and also English I would have thought, not really physics and maths although I'm guessing u just way to do them, if there is a careers adviser at your school, if so speak with them and ask what qualifications would be best to get onto an advertising course at university, if not have a look on the ucas website and search for advertising, this will show u a list of UNis that offer that course and they usually either show the requirements (a level) eg BBB and then might say "must have at least a B in art" or something like that
    hope this helps, if you need anymore help with art, graphics, textiles or anything don't heaitate to ask
