Some universities count maths and further maths as one a level

Most people would do 4 AS, but that doesn't mean you can't get in with 3. As far as I'm aware Cambridge accept Maths and Further Maths as separate A-Levels so that shouldn't be a problem.

The best thing to do would be email an admission tutor to be sure, or use one of the Ask an Admissions Tutor threads on the Cambridge forum.

It is possible but you will be at a huge disadvantage alongside many Economics applicants who have four of five AS and 4 A2. Why would you only do 3?

If you come from a very disadvantaged background or school this should be mentioned on your application. You will need very high UMS, and good GCSEs in English/History will help to demonstrate a strong application.

I just moved to England few months before GCSE and English is not my first Language, so my grades weren't really good. Because of that the tutor told me to do 3 AS Levels so I can only focus on those three courses that I'll do in A2.
