    Oxford (PPE)
    Exeter (Economics)
    Bristol(Politics and economics)
    LSE(politics and economics)
    Southampton (Politics and economics)

    Or any other uni with just economics e.g Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, kent

    You don't have to have taken Economics at A Level to do Economics in University. I think Economic knowledge is valued but not specified on the course profiles. All depends on your grades I suppose. I'm also doing an EPQ in Economics, however I'm taking Economics anyway so.

    Edit: I'm studying Maths w/ Statistics, Economics, Business and Philosophy at AS currently. I want to study Economics/Business at university and go into Investment Banking if possible.

    So I wouldn't be at a disadvantage? Would I look bad to different applicants or would I have as much chance then. Also are my other subjects good for it? Thanks

    As long as you have Maths at a level, you should be able to get into a Bsc Economics course and some BA Economics course may not need A level maths. However, the key normally is that maths is taken to an A level standard.
