    Without having studied Maths I doubt it would be too difficult to get into an Economics related course as long as you can show during the application/interview stage that you are quite interested in economics. Majority of Universities that offer courses in economics do not have any special requirements with the exception of maths. This is where you get the division between the highly quantitative economic's degrees and their bog standard BA counterparts. Getting a top mark in your Maths A level with greatly increase your chances of getting into a top university

    There are other options you can look at however such as Financial Mathematics? Actuarial Science? etc etc
