I am taking maths chemistry history and politics A-Level as well as physics AS and I am looking to do economics at uni. I didn't take it to A Level however but looking to do an EPQ in economics. Here is what I'll apply for:
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.

In case you didn't know, no university requires you to have taken Economics at A-level

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

Yep, no disadvantage at all As long as you do well in your subjects(most importantly maths), you should be more than fine

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.
