    Whats better when applying for economics at LSE and all those places, Pure A Level Maths (C1-4, FP1 and another) or A Level Mathematics (C1-4 plus 2 other units), as there are two distinct A Levels?

    Normal Maths, they'd like to see a bit of stats, not just all pure. Though it dosen't matter greatly either way.

    doesnt really matter to get in (grade more important), but if you do get in the first year will be slighly easier if you have done stats. (I don't think the admissions tutors really look into what type of maths a level you have done or look at individual units)

    They don't know what type yuo have done unless you disclose it or the course is entitled "mathematics with statistics" like mine was before i did further.

    So, as people have said, it doesn't matter too much, the grades the important thing, but to make it easy on yourself, do stats modules.
