    Depends on what you want to study in university.

    If you want to study a science subject, yes. Politics is a bit out there in this case but you take four subjects so it does not matter that much.

    If you want to study medicine, it is an alright combination, but I would suggest swapping politics for biology since biology is almost a must for medicine.

    If you want to study a course which highly recommends further mathematics at A-level, I would suggest swapping politics for further mathematics.

    If you want to study politics or international relations, it is a bit of an iffy combination but if you are very lucky, you may get an offer.

    If you want to study humanities/arts/social sciences (say, English literature, sociology or music, for example), no.

    Politics is a bit random. I assume you want to do a scientific degree and career? In which case I'd suggest either Biology or Further Maths (especially) instead of politics. If not just do 3 and save yourself the workload, no universities require 4 A-Levels and A*AA is better than AAAB if you wanna get into Cambridge or Oxford.
