    Hi there, im currently doing Maths, Physics, Economics and Geography at AS. Im predicted 4A's and want to go to Oxford/Cambridge. I want to do either Engineering or Economics. I have a stronger passion for Engineering, however I am worried that the lack of Further Maths will hinder my application for Cambridge, therefore the Economics route seems more appealing as I am more likely to get into Oxbridge. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Do what your interested in. Dont go down the economics route just because you lack further maths because most do have further maths when applying for economics!

    What does that have to do with anything? If you want to be an engineer you will study engineering and where you do won't bother you.
