You dont need much at A level. If you do it at degree level then you will need A level standard Maths.
However I know people who have done no A level Maths, and had GCSE B, and got through an Economics degree, although they had to part wing it as they never really engaged with the mathematical bits.
For A level Econ though I don't think there's anything to worry about.
