Not doing Business at A-Level?

Pay can vary but Business Studies or Business Management are good bets.

Economics
Maths
Business

All three are traditional courses so understandably they are equally difficult and competitive to get into.
However I'd say Business is more varied than the other 2 as Economics and Maths are the main elements and ingredients of what makes a business.

There's many options, e.g. accounting or economics. Accountants are always in demand and you'll see this if you run a job search on accountants. Alternatively, if you get something like A*AA you could study economics at a target university and consider investment banking as a career.

But an accounting degree doesn't actually qualify me to become an accountant

It will if you take the exams required to become an accountant (i don't remember thename of them off the top of my head). Some accounting degrees actually include them but you should double check with the university.

Most of them don't include all of the required exams. Do you think it's possible to do the others alongside the degree course

Accounting degrees give you exemptions to the formal accounting exams. So what people do is they get their degree and then join an accounting firm which pay for them to finish the last few exams.

If you're smart, I don't recommend doing a business degree. It's not a well regarded degree if you want to earn big bucks in the city.

You are better off doing Economics, Maths or Accounting / Finance (if you want to be an accountant).
