I always though ppl were rushing me to choose but now Ive just recived my GCSE results (got 5's,6's and 7's btw) I am seriously struggling to choose what courses to choose.

I want to choose strategically so I end up with a job that gets butt loads of money xD but also something I may enjoy. For a while I was interested in physics but I heard its very maths and to be honest I despise maths and believe this will hinder the course.

What courses are fun but also gunna get me a damn good paying job xD

Accountancy or something with the sciences (but they may require maths). Business Studies is quite an open ended subject as it can get you in a lot of jobs

You can't really think 'strategically'. The subjects you chose at A-Level don't necessarily dictate how much money you're going to earn. If you're good at what you do and put a lot of work in, you could get a good paying job in any discipline, so you have to choose what's going to work for you personally. If you plan on going to university, some subjects like maths and science are more favoured, but of course they're also generally more difficult (that said, A-Levels are all pretty hard, and in any A-Level you take there's going to be stuff you don't enjoy studying).
You just need to find subjects that you are willing to work hard at for for 2 years, either because you enjoy them, or, even if they find them really difficult (in which case, they'll require even more work), you think the career opportunities they'll give you are worth the effort. Having a look at university courses which you think sound good, even if you're not instantly attracted to those courses, and seeing the kinds of subjects different courses require will also help.
