    These are exactly the same A Levels that I am doing. Except I will also be taking Further Maths in my A2 year.

    Most universities will be fine with those choices. Top unis like Cambridge would rather you were taking a science instead of Economics but will not discount your application just for that.

    Physics would help I think, it has some similarities.

    For good preparation Maths and Physics are generally a good way to go with.

    For the best preparation Maths, Further Maths and Physics are very good.

    You don't actually have to do Computer Science, although if you're both good and passionate there's no reason why you shouldn't.

    If you want to get onto the most competitive Compsci you should seriously consider doing Maths and Physics rather than Maths and Economics. However generally no university will automatically not consider you just because you didn't do a science.

    Maths though is probably the most important subject and you should be doing either M1 or D1 within your modules.
