    Hi. Im looking to apply to warwick for econ.

    Got 10 a stars at GCSE/ iGSCE as well as an a in a short course.

    I take maths economics biology and chemistry for a level. Only maths has an as and i just got an a in that.

    My predictions are a star for biology and a in all the other three.

    What do you think my chances are?
    Thanks.

    You don't need further maths at oxford and the degree is half about management(its called economics and management) or you could try cambridge which is pure econ

    No you don't. Check the website.


    OP, since the standard offer is A*AA with an A in Maths, yes of course you have a chance. They may prefer the A* to be in Maths rather than Biology, but you do meet the minimum requirements so an offer is possible.
