    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 :-)

    As far as I can tell from my 5 minutes of research, the only uni from your list that see Maths + Further Maths as "one" subject is LSE. So would you rather go to LSE and do Physics A2 or drop Physics A2 and not go to LSE? Personally, if you're good at Physics, I'd advise you to do it as it makes your application stronger for all unis and opens up LSE, but if you're not that good then drop it as no grade is better than a low grade (in my opinion) and it also may make your other grades suffer.
