    Economics has 2 AS papers at the end of the year (Micro&Macro), and 3 at the end of the whole A-level course.
    Math, as far as I know, has papers C1, C2 + 2 applied at the end of AS, but not 100% sure.
    Physics also has 2 AS papers, as far as I know.

    All subjects have AS exams but a lot of them do not count towards your final A level grade. Out of the subjects that you've mentioned only the AS exams for maths counts towards the final A level grade. You do not have to do ASs for the other two subjects but it could be useful to do so as universities will have a good indication of your ability. Some schools force you to do ASs regardless of if you have to or not.

    Its generally C1, C2 and 1 applied for most schools but some people do take an extra module.

    Every subject has AS exams but some don't count towards the full A level in your case the only subject that counts towards the full A level is maths so you will have to sit those AS exams. Whether or not you sit the AS exams for the other two subjects depends on your school

    If your school do make you sit the exams, as mine did, you will get an AS grade. But if you decide to take that subject to A2 your AS grade will no longer count but you'll still have to declare the AS grade on UCAS
