    Oxford doesn't do a straight Economics degree... They have an Economics & Management course, in that case you don't need FM, just Maths. This is all on the Oxford website though!

    I expect there are loads You'll need to check the uni websites. Warwick doesn't, nor does: Bath (though it does say FM is preferred)
    Durham
    Nottingham
    Cardiff


    Good luck!

    Very few universities require FM, not least because not all schools offer it.

    Some may prefer it though.

    FM to AS will help your application to any university

    Caution: Universities may ask why you didn't continue further maths (arguably the most relevant subject) to A2 if you intend on studying economics. You may be able to explain this away but it seems sensible to study that and drop geography at A2, I think.
