    To be honest you should avoid, because of the massive overlap. Some universities even state that doing both will significantly reduce your chances of getting an offer. That being said however, I done both and gained offers from top universities such as Warwick & Nottingham. I have genuine interest in both subjects, and I didn't really care how other parties may view my preference.

    No, pick Economics, it contains both macro and micro units (business economics).

    You can learn about business/finance in your own time if you wish, I could give you some resources if you are keen.

    I currently study both at A2 I got 4/5 offers from Manchester, Newcastle, Reading and Bath(politics with economics) to study economics and politics. I would say a solid 98% of universities don't really care unless you want to go to LSE, Oxbridge and maybe two or three other universities it could be a drawback however most Russell Group Uni's don't really care as long as you get the grades to get in.
