Which course at university? It’s not normal to specify business related subjects.

I wouldn’t worry - they will let anyone with a pulse into that course. How good at maths are you? Can you start with 4 a levels to see how you get on?

Then FM sounds like a really great choice for you! It would open lots of different options for the future. How do you get on with your other subjects?

You don't need to go to university for that - I doubt that a university course will be of much help. Perhaps look at physics A level also as it does open up some courses which might be of real value in the music business.
