    I don't understand what you're asking... what do you mean by alternatives?

    Well, here's the league table for economics. You can apply to up to 5 places but not both Oxford and Cambridge. You'd have to check the entry requirements of the universities you like the look of though because I'm not sure how your grades equate to UK qualifications.

    HSC grades are considered parallely with A levels
    A* 90%+
    A 80 to 90
    And so on

    Surely not exactly equivalent to A levels though since no one takes 7 A levels! For UK students universities specify 3 A level grades. Anyway, my point was that *you* need to do the research, no one can do that for you. Obviously no one on the internet knows your preferences for modules you absolutely (don't) want to take, whether you'd rather be in a small town or big city, what part of the UK, etc etc.
