    If you want to go to uni then have a look at the course entry requirements.

    Obviously economics and maths are good A Levels to take given your interests. If there's a possibility that you'd want to study Mathematics at university, then you need to take further maths. But if you want to do economics, then generally just good A levels are required (but taking maths is favourable). Further maths is a good A level to have so might be worth considering. The pure modules also have a lot of the most interesting mathematics content you can study at A level (such as complex numbers).

    Why have you decided on psychology? Is it just interest? If so, there's nothing wrong with that as it's nice to do something a bit different (I did theoretical physics at uni but took history A level for interest).

    I don't know much about accounts but I suppose it would be quite useful given your interests.

    If you enjoy and love maths, replace psychology with further maths. If you're aiming for top unis it will be beneficial.
