Hey, I am new in this community. Sorry if this is the wrong section to post about this lol.

I recently finished my O level ( GCSE ). I am having confusing while choosing my 3 subjects ( 3 is the minimum ) for A levels. Presently I am not studying in England but I have planned to join an England University to do MBA ( Master of Business Administration ) after completing my A levels.

Can anyone advice me which subjects should I choose? I don't want to choose the subjects which would not be accepted by the university in the future.

Thanks in advance

First you would need an undergraduate degree then some business experience.

You can do an MBA with any undergraduate degree, it doesn't need to be a quantitative subject.

They would be fine although I'd suggest not doing Business at A-level if you are going to do a degree in it. Is there another subject you also like?

Based on my life experience if you have a good GMAT and a big chequebook you can get on a MBA.

Even LBS says:
"What undergraduate degree subject should I have?
There is no particular preference. We welcome applications from arts, languages and philosophy graduates as well as those from the pure sciences, engineering, maths and the social sciences, including business and economics."

In fact an undergrad degree isn't required by them at all.

so then post what you think, dont feel the need to quote me or mansplain me. Threads often have different advice that is normal. No one else goes out of their way to quote me, you seem to have some weird grammar nazi type vibe. You enjoy picking arguments. Im not going to trade links back and fourth with you

You quote me in the most random threads even unrelated to students, this obsession is not healthy. I know you want a reaction which is why you do this,

but seriously grow up

Actually I studies science subjects plus business, would I have any problem in the future if I study Economics and Accounting in A level?

Well if you suggest me not to do Business then I can study Accounting in place of that. So my 3 subjects would be Economics, Accounting and Maths. But I am really good at Business Studies tho...

The point is there's a fair bit of overlap between Economics, Accounting and Business Studies. One of those subjects would be sufficient.

What are your science subjects? Are these additional A-levels?

I just finished my O levels. English, Maths, Computer Science, Physics, Business Studies, Pakistan Studies and Islamiat. These are the 7 subjects which I choosed and gave in O levels.

Now I will start my A levels from September ( 2018 ). I am not sure which subjects to choose because some universities does not prefer those students who studied both Economics and Business Studies.
So, which 3 subjects should I choose in A levels? Keeping in mind that I want to do Bachelors in Marketing or Business Administration.

I apologize for confusing you.

No problem - that's what I though you meant, I just wanted to be sure

So you originally asked if Business, Maths and Economics would work. I think Maths, Economics and one of Physics/CompSci/English would be better than Maths, Economics and Business for the reasons you yourself gave.

But if you think you will get better grades with a different combination (and find the subjects more enjoyable) then that's always a factor to consider too.

So if I choose Maths, Economics and Computer Science for example. Can I get admission on any university of England to do Bachelors in Business?
Or there is any specific subjects which I have to study.

Yes those subjects would be fine.

BSc Business (or Management) rarely has specific subject requirements, and if they do it would be Maths that is the only required subject. Similarly for BSc Economics or BSc CompSci should you want to consider those options.

Admissions (or rather Offers) are also partly determined by your achieved or predicted A-level grades - so the "top" universities also expect you to have the top grades.

Thank you so much for helping! I am only interested in doing BSc Business and later maybe Marketing MBA.

Do you recommend me to do A levels or AS levels?

It's not either/or. You need A-levels for university.
