I did Economics at Standard level instead of Higher level, when applying to an economics course? I know the courses don't say that is is required but would they still view my application as worse than somebody who did?
The reason I'm not taking it is because of a time-tabelling problem and I'm not sure if I want to do Economics at Uni anyways. Also the universities I'm thinking about are the top ones.

As long as you're doing maths at higher level then I would assume it would be ok. Although, someone who did economics may be viewed a better candidate as they would have a better grounding for starting the course. But, if they don't specificaly ask for it then you should be a t no disadvantage as long as you really prove your academic potential in your other fields of study. Speak to the universitites - call up and ask their unofficial opinion, then you can't go wrong.

A consideration might be doing A level economics (or another equivalent qualification) on top of the IB, which shouldn't be too hard as most of it would be taught at the IB anyway, and it'd be helpful in showing you're competant at the subject.
