    I have chosen Maths, Economics, Business Studies and Biology for A level. I want to get into some elite university for BA Economics hons. I'll also be studying english language at AS Level. Are these good enough or any changes I should make?

    Biology is hard and not relevant for Economics. Economics and Bussiness Studies is an overlaping and it's not well appreciated by unis. English language is ok but better would be Literature.

    How about Maths, Further Maths and Economics? And what would you recommend for a fourth subject? I'm studying English language at AS level because Unis in our country require it

    This combination is much better. Fourth subject you can take what you like more, but no Bussiness Studies

    i was thinking of taking a science, but I'm not intrested in physics and chemistry. History, Geography is not offered in school. So that leaves me with just Biology

    Actually, unis ask for 3 A Levels. Why do you want 4?. Check with your unis requirements.
