    As you seem rather intelligent, based off of the subjects that interest you, I'm assuming you could take 4 subjects.

    If you want to do Economics at Uni:
    Essential: Economics, German and Maths. Beneficial: Further Maths/History. (I know you didn't mention economics a level in your post but it seems logical to take it if that's the route you go down. I also known that German isn't essential in terms of entry requirements, but having a foreign language in economics is a very valuable skill to have!).

    If you want to do Maths at Uni:
    Essential: Maths and Further Maths. Beneficial: Physics/Chemistry (or anything tbh, you could even do History and German and still get into a maths degree as only Maths and Further Maths really matter tbh).

    If you want to do Medicine/Dentistry:
    Essential: Biology and Chemistry. Beneficial: Maths/Further Maths/Physics.

    If you want to do law:
    Essential: If your school does law a level, it would make sense to take it. But you can do without it. Beneficial: History/German/Economics/English Language/English Literature. (I know you don't express interest in English lang and lit, but they're relatively common a level options for aspiring lawyers).

    You haven't mentioned interest in studying a Physics based degree. However, if you do change your opinion on that this would be my suggestion for A levels:

    For Physics/Engineering/Related Degrees:
    Essential: Physics, Maths, Further Maths. Beneficial: Chemistry/German.

    Hope I have helped in some way and good luck
