    Find me a relevant university course that says 'doing S in AL Mathematics is preferential'. My is doing Economics at LSE before you assume you know more than me

    "My is doing economics at LSE" who exactly?

    I'm not assuming I know more than you. I'm simply taking the advice of my teachers and ATs I've asked is doing FM really worth it and if so which modules. Bath, Cambridge, St Andrews and Brasenose when we had an AT come to school all said to focus on the S modules.

    I'll also quote the economics faculty at Cambridge.

    "Considering the mathematical and statistical contents of the Cambridge Economics course, taking Further Mathematics at AS/A level or IB Higher Level is very useful. For AS/A-level Further Maths, you will benefit from choosing Pure Maths and Statistics modules (rather than Mechanics or Decision Maths). If your school does not offer Further Maths (or the desired modules), you still have the opportunity to take it using the Further Mathematics Support Programme. Most successful applicants for the Economics course at Cambridge have A-level Further Maths."
