    This might not be what most people would advise, but I would suggest doing the subjects you think you will enjoy and be good at.

    Good grades will generally help you more than subjects. There are exceptions, but they tend to be in highly "technical" or "specialist" degree, namely sciences.

    It really depends what your options are at sixth form/college too. But if business is an area of interest, then look at business studies or economics, maybe with a core subject (if you like any of them) or a key essay based subject (history/politics etc).

    The reason for suggesting these is that you are keeping your options open to a lot of different degrees and variety of types of A-level subjects will help that.
