    If you are that easily hoodwinked then I suggest you forget about a career in Economics.

    Teach yourself, get your school to enter you into the exams. I don't know what stats alevel is? S1-5 and another applied? anyway, that means all you need to learn is FP1 and FP2 or FP3, for Maths and Further Maths.
    you need fp1 and fp2/fp3 and another 4 applied modules for further no? I dont think he can use his statistics modules if he already got an a level with those

    If you apply to Economics and Stats at UCL then yes, it's a good combo. You might get into E&M at Oxford. It's possible, but you really need a 4th AS that's further maths, if not possible then do a different subject but a 4th AS is important.

    Perhaps your teacher has a reason why he/she didn't enter you for further maths?

    What is A-level Statistics? S1 to S5?
    No. Different A level.

    You should probably rethink the uni's you want to apply to.
    Like everyone's said, learn f.maths on your own, and give yourself a better chance.

    can't change subjects
    Your only chance at the unis you mentioned are through your AS Level results in strong and more than three subjects since you're GCSEs aren't good.

    Sorry, I meant use the statistics lessons for further maths rather then statistics a-level. I realise it's a little extra work to call your statistics further maths, but looking at entry reqs he'll need FM.

    Yes but everyone has Further Maths and Oxford's requirements are misleading low - there only intended purpose is to make sure you finish your alevels (they are not intended to be a hurdle for anyone).

    Ask them in an email maybe, but you still will need an extra AS from what I remember about their requirements.

    get 95%+ in all your subjects at AS, undertake LOTS of economics reading-write a great personal statement, get great reference quoting your great results with A*A*A* predictions. Then your best chance would be Cambridge - the others are just GCSE whores (i.e. No).
