Hopefully a business degree at a uni and prospects of a job in management or even a business owner

I think you should try to do at least 1 (preferably 2) facilitating A levels, such as history or maths - perhaps in place of RS.

The three you have listed are on the softer end of the spectrum, which isn't necessarily a problem as long as you are aware.

Good luck!!

Thanks but do you think that my A levels would get me in to a business management course in somewhere like Brighton who require BBB

Quite possibly, but I still think you should take at least 1 facilitating A levels, probably in place of RS (or Sociology, but not Business).

For example, for a BSc in Business Management at Swansea Uni (BBB - BBA):

The top two A level combinations in previous years:

-Business, English Lit, History
-Business, Psychology, Geography

If you really feel you cannot do a facilitating A level then don't, but I would highly recommend to do 1 or more.

Facilitating A levels:
Spoiler:
Show
  • Mathematics and Further Mathematics.
  • English Literature.
  • Physics.
  • Biology.
  • Chemistry.
  • Geography.
  • History.
  • Languages (Classical and Modern)

I'm thinking of swapping sociology for history. Do you think they would be stronger options

Those a levels are very good but do you think me taking history, RS and business studies is impressive. Also is history for sociology is a better choice.

I think history is a better choice. U might find it easier to learn history if u got history gcse than sociology. TBH, history, business and sociology sounds pretty good as well. RS doesn't seem to have a very close connection with ur goal.

It sounds alright to me though u could take some subjects more related to what u want to do in the future. However, if those are the subjects u feel u re gonna do well in, then go ahead. It all depends on u.
My opinion cannot represent urs. Subjects that seem to be good for me doesn't mean it would sound good for u. I went against my mum by choosing to take further maths which forced to me to do 5 a levels cos she did not see the point of taking further maths when there is maths already. I am about to start sixth form next week and I know that it doesn't matter how hard my a levels will be, I won't regret my options.
Don't make urself regret ur options.

According to which and many other unis business courses often dont require specific a levels but some do require facilitating subjects

You are taking way too many.

You only need 3 A levels.
