In order to Apply Economics at UCL, I need A-Level in a foreign language . I want to study Economics at UCL and I know a language fluently. But I don't have the A-Level in that language. Can I still apply for Economics at UCL? or do I have to take an exam to prove that I speak that language?

Please Help

I suppose that even though you speak fluently that foreign language, they will expect you to prove it with something like an exam, as you must "prove" anything you "say". As you are talking about economics, and that they don't do interviews, you cannot expect to prove it in front of them.

I recommend you just send a mail to them to ask!

Where are you getting that you need an A-Level? Going by this page you only need a C-grade GCSE:
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-stu...omics-bsc-econ

Even then, if you don't have it you just have to take a language course once you've started instead anyway

Just get a different qualification in that language to prove it. For example for german you can sit an exam at a goethe institute.

no i don't, sorry :/. search for a spanish university and check their entry requirements. There you will see what spanish qualification you need and you can google it to see where you can get it.
