    So if someone did Maths, Economics and Physics and applied to do an Economics degree, would they get a lower offer from someone who did something like Maths, Economics and Psychology.

    However, for maths related subjects, doing further maths, will usually give you a lower offer by 1 grade. But check the unis requirements, as it wil usually say about this, when showing what a typical offer would be

    It depends - 'relevant' rather than 'harder' probably. Eg Southampton give out BBB offers for Biology to people doing 3 sciences, ABB if you do 2 sciences + 1 non science, and AAB if you do 1 science + 2 non sciences (although I think their website says that combination would be unlikely to get an offer).

    It's not so much getting a lower offer for economics/etc as getting the offer to start with - if the university prefers maths, then someone taking maths could get the standard offer but someone without it may not get an offer. So yes doing maths was a big advantage but you still need to get the grades.
