I am currently choosing my A-levels and I am thinking about taking maths, chemistry, physics and economics. Later in life I think I would like to go into the finance industry and maybe do accountancy or stock broking.
But my problem is that everyone tells you that you should take subjects that you enjoy at a-level, but to be honest I don't really enjoy any subjects at school, so I have chosen the ones I think will get me to where I want to be, rather than have the best 2 years at collage?
Also if anyone has any tips or advice about these four subjects, and about the jump from GCSE to A-level and the workload it would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

I picked exactly the same 4 subjects! I thought that Chemistry would be the worst and Physics would be the best, but so far, I would rank them from best to worst; Maths>Chemistry>Economics>Physic s. I got a B in Maths, but the jump up wasn't that far if you work hard and do the homework, got a B in my C1 Maths mock so its not that hard! Chemistry is really fun, it just requires a lot of work, remembering all the equations etc. Economics is alright I guess, just remembering loads of definitions and how to answer the questions properly. Physics is just bleh, I'm just taking it for the Maths aspect when I go to uni.
So they are demanding subjects, but I'm sure every A level course is. Just make sure you do all your homework on time, keep up with revision and reading around the subject outside of class, and you'll do fine!
