    For maths it probably would have been preferable to study F.maths although this isn't a requirement. However it looks okay to me. Are you planning to take all to A2 or cutting one to AS?

    I think they show good range of skills and interests - and a language always looks good on an application

    Those are a good subject combination for either maths/econ. Econ shows you can write essays which would be necessary for an econ degree too, a language is impressive to employers and obviously maths is essential. You are showing a good range of skills in "hard" subjects. However, it would probably be better to swap English lit for further maths. At the highest ranking unis for maths or econ, most applicants will have further maths and at some, having it is actually a requirement.
