    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 (my favourite), Cambridge, Warwick, Queen Mary UoL, King's College London, Cardiff etc.

    Also what would you recommend I do?

    Thank you :-)

    I did those exact A levels and went on to do economics at uni. When I went through the application process (3/4 years ago) I too thought the same, although for me to get accepted into LSE I had no option but to continue on with Physics. I don't believe any other university sees it this way, but that may have changed since. No-one here can give you the correct information with certainty, so email the admissions teams yourself. Even though in the end I didn't firm/insure LSE, I still chose to do continue on with Physics. It should be OK to drop to 3 A-levels, but places like Cambridge may not look upon it favourably, as it signals to them that you're not capable of the workload.
