Am I wasting my time applying for Economics?

    A few days ago I posted a thread about me wanting to switch from Psychology to Economics at Southampton University. The only problem is I haven't done A level maths but have above average grades for the university in different subjects (Psy A*, Geog A*, Phil A).

    I've emailed the head of admissions explaining my position. I said I would study maths over summer if necessary. I also said I'd study Economics with Management or another subject which only requires you to have AS maths at grade B.

    I don't think I'm getting a reply until after Easter... do you guys think I'm wasting my time with this? I know some universities don't require you to have taken maths... but I have explained I'd be more than willing to study it over summer!

    I have a nasty feeling it's not enough, what do you think? Is this a bit of a hopeful application, a bit 'out of the norm'?

    This thread addresses my problem better than the previous thread. Why does it even matter to you? My previous thread is dead and I'm hardly spamming the forum.

    EDIT: I guess what I'm looking for is someone who has been in a similar situation or someone who can actually give an opinion without asking me to wait for the email :P
