    Well here is my situation -

    This year I studied:
    -Financial Studies
    -French A2

    Now, I don't like maths that much so I want to drop it, so that leaves me doing financial studies and economics at A2, along with french that makes three a levels.
    But, when i apply for uni's will they accept Financial studies as an A level???
    I dont want it to be the case that they will not accept me because they expect A levels in better subjects, if that's the case, I'd prefer to choose maths..

    I'm looking at ABC grades predicted for me, so for uni's with that type of grade requirement, how likely is it that they will look at finance and turn me down??

    If I were you I would definitely carry on maths just to be on the safe side.
    Usually anything that ends in "studies" is a no go area. Check the cambridge blacklist. Ill have a snout and get back to you.

    EDIT: It's not on there but accounting is :/
    Dunno mate, depends where you're going to apply to and what for really.
