    Good grades would certainly help, but I believe there are alternative courses you can do if you are not very good at maths, it's worth emailing companies asking what grades they look for. If you get a C in maths they may ask for you to complete an additional maths test to determine your levels, all depends on the company.

    no i would say, maths is a large part of it but not the most important

    i would say economics and sujects like those are probably valued slightly higher than maths

    Yes it involves numbers and calculations so maths is a strong subject but its not all, business or accounting would be relied upon as well
