what do u mean no not really, could you expand on that ? what did i say that is wrong?
In short: everything, but I'll spell it out for you if you like: Whether subjects are considered "essential", "recommended" etc. depends on what course you're actually applying for - of course Maths (and usually Further Maths) are essential if you're applying for maths-related degrees, but they're quite irrelevant for humanities subjects. Similarly, somebody who wants to do physics or engineering can easily do without an A-level in English Language. Blanket statements like "Maths [is] 99% essential" etc are, frankly, utter rubbish, though. As is the statement "If you get A in 3 of these subjects including Maths then u will probably get a place in Oxbridge", suggesting that these are somehow magical subject combinations, because they're not. A significant percentage of maths applicants, for example, will be doing three of the subjects on that list of yours - and as you're presumably aware, the majority of maths applicants are rejected, even though most of them do get three As. So much for "u will probably get a place in Oxbridge".
Conversely, a significant percentage of successful applicants for humanities subjects will not
have done three of the subjects off your list, because their ability at maths or physics is quite irrelevant to their potential to do well on their chosen course, and if it isn't relevant, "Oxbridge" won't care
