Maths, further maths, any sciences, economics, computing
Any four of them but obviously maths and further maths are preferred

Maths, further maths, physics are most important three, and then computer science or perhaps chemistry.

Just to add on this,
My brother is doing a degree in maths so ill tell you the four that he did:
Maths, Further Maths, Economics, French

I think that they liked french because it was something a bit different ya know? Shows that he has more than one skill, so if there is another subject that you enjoy you could still potentially do that and still do a maths degree.

maths and further maths, you will be asked for one or both of those. then physics or like computer science, because the stuff you learn in there will come up again.

As people have said, the most standard are Maths, Further Maths, Physics. However there is also another qualification called Additional Further Maths (lol) which is literally just Further Further Maths, i.e. you do the remaining A Level maths modules that you would not have covered in M+FM. It's not really necessary, but it's an option.

They're still doing that? I thought they got rid of it in the linear a-level reform.

I think it is still a thing but very few schools do it so most people learn it independently

Oh then they probably have, sorry! While I was typing that I was thinking they might have changed it since I took my A Levels.
In that case I'd probably second something like Computer Science if you're interested in computers/programming as many maths grads do end up in careers such as software engineering.

I mean i did bio chem maths and am going to a RG uni for maths, but obviously if you’re aiming for COWI you’ll need further maths

Additional Further Maths doesn't exist in the new linear spec.

That doesn't prevent people reading up on the modules they haven't covered in FM, but the best thing to prep for a Maths degree is really to do as much "Pure" (in the A level sense) as possible,

Question in title
For context I take Maths, Further Maths, Economics & Physics so may be biased, but my list;
Maths (obviously), Further Maths (extremely highly desired, especially by top institutions), Computer Science (you will have to become very skilled at degree level), Physics (again somewhat obvious). Some other A levels that are useful are Chemistry (again somewhat obvious), Biology (from what I've heard, a lot more stats than GCSE), Economics (subject I'm applying for, not quite as Maths intense at A level as I hoped though), Languages (always useful and will certainly help you in the job market post-degree). I would however advise picking subjects that you enjoy as well, I know people applying to Maths with subjects not on this list like History, Politics, English Literature, Geology and Geography. Good luck

Maths & further maths.

I would imagine other subjects where maths is often applied Could be useful for example physics or economics.

Maths and Further Maths for sure.

I think Physics is overrated in terms of its helpfulness though it is a solid choice and if you are a strong mathematician you are likely to do well.

I would strongly recommend Computer Science, a basic understanding of programming is incredibly helpful to build on and many people who didn't have this struggled with or had to put in far more time to the modules based on programming (in my experience).

Other than that any choice in which you perform well is fine, sciences are particularly good or a language.
