    I was thinking of studying A & f but people say that it's a low quality degree and I'd be better off doing business or economics at uni but I don't like economics do are there any other good degrees?

    Subjects are biology business studies and maths

    Then an accounting / finance degree is more than suitable for your career intentions. I'd advise not listening what "people say". And instead of focus on what degree is right for you. Look at the specifics of what modules are involved in the courses you're looking at and see if they excite you.

    No... Your friends are complete fools. A&F degrees exempt you from some of the exams you'll need to take to become a chartered accountant.
