    I have chosen to do Business Studies, Classics, History and ICT for my AS Levels. Can u please tell me if these are good subjects to take and if I get good grades in them wil I be able to get into a good uni like for e.g manchester, umist or Aston.
    I want to do business management or accounting at uni so will these be useful subjects to take?

    Business management, provided you got the grades, would suit your choices fine.

    However, if you chose to go into accounting, I would think you'd need an AS level in maths - if not an A2. I am not an expert, but to be an accountant, an economics or maths A level would seem necessity...

    Otherwise those choices are good, and best of luck to you in your AS year

    I always advise people to at least try Maths, but otherwise I would say your choices are fine. I do Business and ICT and the only problem with either is the coursework in ICT, which is a real b*tch!

    If you're good with computers do computing instead of ICT.

    Admittedly computing has a better reputation. But ICT is very relevent and useful for a Business Management degree.

    I did Business and ICT, and will be going on to do Business Management at Uni in a couple of weeks - so yeah, good subjects to do.

    classics and history are good, try and keep them on board even when opting for something businesslike ..

    But if I decided to drop Business Studies at AS either because I don't get a good grade in it or because unis don't respect it that much would I still be able to do business management at uni??

    You don't need to be that good at Maths to be an accountant, that's what Excel's for

    I would say those are good choices as history, and I presume classics, teach you to think analytically, whereas busines studies and ICT are more directly related to your future career aspirations. But I agree with some of the others that you'd probably need to take maths for accountancy.
