I am in Yr12 and I study Computer Science, Maths, Biology and Economics for AS level. How disadvantaged would I be if I wanted to go to LSE/ Oxbridge, without taking further maths at AS/A level, providing I met the entry requirements? All 3 universities either said that Further Maths was 'desirable' or 'helpful'. My school wouldn't let me take Further Maths because I received an 8 for GCSE maths and I needed a 9. Would my grade 8 at GCSE maths affect my chances of getting an offer as well? I am aware that LSE likes to look at GCSE grades as well as A levels. Would it be worth applying to these universities in Yr13? Is there an alternative for further maths? Please help me...

I strongly recommend you to take further math (even just AS level). You can sign up the ecams as a private candidate in other institution.
In fact your subject combination is great enough as it contains 3 traditional subjects (bio, math and econs) and only one non-traditional subject. I pretty much believe you would get a conditional offer with the condition that: 1) strong personal statement and 2) good forecast results provided from your school.
