    I'm in year 12 and am currently studying Economics, Maths, Further Maths and Physics. I really want to drop physics as I do not enjoy it, plus it is not relevant to my degree/career path (economicsy, financey etc)

    I don't know what to do because many top unis see maths and further maths as one A Level (e.g. LSE)

    Which universities see further maths as a fourth subject only and which wouldn't mind Economics, Maths and Further Maths for an Economics Degree?

    My dream/considering Unis are UCL, Cambridge, Warwick, Queen Mary UoL, King's College London, Cardiff etc.

    Also what would you recommend I do?

    Thank you :-)

    Your A-levels subject and the subject you study at university isn't taken into consideration at all for most Finance related jobs. For Economics however, they'd expect you to have studied it to a reasonable level.

    UCL, Warwick, QMUL, KCL, Cardiff, Nottingham, York, Birmingham and many other uni accept Further Maths. If you're interested in another uni, you can always send an email asking to get confirmation.
