I'm willing to take psychology, maths, further maths (A level) and business studies. I'm not taking a science since I really don't like any and I don't see any help any of the sciences will help me in my business career.

Do most universities look for sciences? And will it affect me a lot when I'm trying to apply to universities if I didn't take a science?

I think it depends on the course you want to do at uni

Economics is normally regarded better than business studies.

+ maths is more useful for business/accountancy degrees.

Sciences are only needed/useful for certain degrees. You don't need to take them.

Nah universities wouldn't care unless you end up applying for chemistry or some specific science.
Hey I thought psychology was a science?

But good on you for taking Further Maths, it's quite a challenge but no regrets from me =]

I'd say take economics instead of business studies. Your subject line up is fine for a lot of things, especially because you're doing maths & further maths.

Some unis do consider it a science but probably not as 'respected' as the traditional sciences!

i agree, do economics. economics and maths are the two main subjects for business, and then any kind of traditional social science is a bonus

OMG I worked out to make my sig into a spoiler!
Anyways, yeh I guess so. I think Economics would be a safer option if you want to continue with Maths at uni.

Psychology is a science for people who can't do science.

Definately fine, advice above is great also. Econ over business studies, and history is a nice option as it shows essay writing skills without being taxing like english. Even though you write in Econ and psychology it's not the same as the clear skills universities can see from a good grade in history. I'd say try History, Maths, Further Maths and Econ, that way you have a good combo, granted its all up to you and what you enjoy! Trust me though above all else keep maths and further, I wish I did further
