For finance or engineering you’ll likely be asked to have maths as an HL e.g. HL AA for engineering HL AI for finance. Taking HL AA kind of leaves doors open.

I think your subjects look great for a pure business degree but it’s likely that schools would prefer you to have HL maths.

I agree with alma_beu, for Maths HL is a good idea. I would switch it with global politics.

The thing is I cannot take HL AA maths as I did not pass the exam my school has to see if we can take math HL, so I think engineering is out of the table for me

It sounds like it... is there any way you could revise and re-sit that test? Unfortunately, without HL maths, your options for engineering or finance will be very limited (if at all existent)

I don't think engineering is possible without HL maths (at least everyone else applying for engineering courses will have taken HL maths). I would check on university websites because some are happy as long as you do AA at maths SL. Your choices seem more suitable for a business management BA degree. I would recommend doing this and then doing maybe a Masters in finance if that is still what you want to pursue.
