    Say you wanted to do economics at Warwick or Durham.. Would it be better to have stellar grades but that weren't really related to the degree eg: Maths, French, Psychology and Spanish at A*AA or better to have highly related a levels such as Maths, Further Maths, economics and physics at ABB?

    Which would they prefer? I know this is quite a poor example but just looking for a general idea

    To give a general idea Warwick would prefer that you got stellar grades in subjects that are not directly linked to your course(s) for instance the ones you mentioned. Reason for this it shows that you an academic candidate that would be able to do their course and not struggle or be put on additional or preparatory lessons to as a means of "go on son! I'll baby you".

    Regardless of the original question, you need very good grades in relevant subjects to get into Warwick.
