I have been researching universities the past few days and I have come across the phrase mentioned in the title quite a lot. I am hoping to study Economics at university and I have seen that the bulk of the entry requirements state something along the lines of 'Typical offer - AAA-AAB including Mathematics
I am currently in college but not studying Maths, I am however doing Economics, History and Gov.&Politics. I have had a extremely deep interest in Economics for a number of years now, being subscribed to multiple economics news outlets such as the Financial Times, The Economist, Forbes and many others as well as reading books by leading economists ( Adam Smith, JMK, Milton Friedman etc.) as well as other leading titles on this subject, plus a number of journals and the like.... I'm a nerd I know..
Would it be possible to use this as a replacement for the Maths A-Level which I lack and could I, in essence, convince them by showing how passionate I am about the subject by writing a very convincing PS and do very well in the interview?
I have already ruled out the universities which state Maths to be required as I can understand that there would be little hope in me persuading them. Predicted grades for my subjects as of today are A*AA while my GCSE maths was a B.
Thank you for all the help everybody

Not all unis require an A in maths. An example is Birmingham who require AAA with no specific subject requirements

Probably on some but the hyper competitive ones like LSE and UCL highly improbable.
