    dropped maths at AS
    The unis I have found don't require maths at alevel (Southampton, birmingham to name a few)
    But, I feel like I might be disadvantaged because the admissions people may question why I want to do this course despite dropping maths ???
    Yes/no? Am I just over thinking this?

    Well why do you want to do that course?
    As long as you meet the requirements you have a good chance at getting a place.

    If they say you'll accept you without maths then its worth a try

    You will not be in a disadvantage at any uni offering this course, as non of them require any previous knowledge or their respective A-level (the same applies for most vocational courses such as Economics, Business, Tourism). Most will only require either a high GCSE grade or AS/A-level Maths. If the entry requirement of a particular uni does not state it, then you will not be at any disadvantage at all.
