    Yep, they all fit with business so they work fine.

    I wouldn’t go as far as to call them a perfect combination, and as you may or may not know there’s a list of subjects that Russel group universities do prefer (Maths, Chem, Bio, Physics, English Lit, History, Geog, Languages) and you can hardly go wrong by taking one of those.

    But, ultimately grades are what matter. If you can get the grades you need in the subjects you’ve chosen they’re completely fine. ☺️

    instead of Product design, i think you should do A level mathematics, since it essential for every university degree.

    I’d look at University websites with the course you want to do & check their requirements

    Consider the facilitating subjects (Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Geography, History, Languages and English literature) as they're highly recognised by uni's as the best subjects to have. Most Russell group uni's ask for at least one of these depending on the course, and the best will ask for 2 and maybe even 3 which shouldn't be the case with a business degree. Do the most research you can for a range of degrees and check the entry requirements, not just the grades but the subjects they accept them in. The more facilitating subjects you have opens up many more doors if you think you might change your mind in a year's time, but if you're sure you want to do business at the unis you think are best for you and allow your subject choices then go for it
