Hi,

It really depends on what you enjoy doing the most, IMHO. English and Business Management at HL is probably enough to fulfill the entrance requirements for any uni degrees related to business, so I would take the last HL subject which you like the most. If you're more creative then go for art, but if you're better at science and stuff like that then maybe go for Biology. Also, it kind of depends on what kind of business you see yourself going into. E.g., if you want to go into more design-related business then art is probably best but in all honesty, it probably doesn't really matter. I can't imagine either subject playing a significant role in a university course for business.

So in short, go for whichever excites you the most or is most relevant to the type of business you would like to pursue.

Hope this helps

Hey!

It depends on what you think you want to do after sixth form. This is your chance to do some useful procrastination and look up uni courses/apprenticeships/job requirements and see what they ask for. Some might prefer a science, even if I imagine most wouldn't mind as long as you have the grades +/- an essay-based subject.

That said, make sure you choose subjects you enjoy as it'll make it easier for you to get good grades

Good luck!

Just remember that some unis in the UK (LSE and UCL) require HL maths for business.
