Math, Econ, Physics, Further Math with Stat option, and ofcourse...General paper. Why physics? Because it makes u a man...

And on a more serious note, take subjects that you like and can get good grades in, anything math/econ. Most importantly, sit for SOA/IOA prelim exams atleast once during ur A-levs. Try to intern during ur summers. Good luck.

Further Maths, Maths, Economics, Accounts.

I presume if you change your mind and plan for something else after your GCE, you would probably go towards commerce. So these subjects would be the best choice for you.

I would strongly recommend getting a bachelors if you ever intend to work outside Pakistan. I have a feeling US companies require a bachelors...but I could be wrong. Masters...don't sweat it! Doesn't matter beyond bachelors in this field.

any subject related to statistics would be an excelent
and also some preliminary maths having integration and diffrentiation
besides these
economics..no need of accounts as such

Take as many maths / stats modules possible during your A Levels. You also need some understanding of Finance, so also make a habit of reading business pages of a good quality national/international paper.
