    I wanted to combine my language studies at university with either business management or politics but I don't know whether it's possible.

    Should I have studied Business Studies or Government and Politics?

    Yes, because business and politics aren't courses which require facilitating subjects (I.e. subjects at A-level you need for certain degrees).

    Generally, people don't study politics at A Level, so you should be fine to take that up for a degree. However, business studies is becoming more and more popular, so you might be at a disadvantage if you haven't studied that before. You'll need to check uni entrance requirements carefully.

    I would have thought it would be OK. Just to make sure though, have a look at the entry requirements and prerequisites for the universities you want to apply to. If you are in any doubt, email the admissions department at the university.

    That's great thank you, I'm just really confused because I have checked the majority of the entry requirements for BA Modern Languages and Business Management and all of them just simply say I require an A level in the language I am studying in which of course I'm a bit uncertain about.

    Depends on the uni and course. Sometimes in the description on the course that having studied a subject previously is required or desired. I think you should be fine with the course you want to do? But I'd double check with the course description.
