Cambridge and UCL Economics courses all ask for AAA so i think all candidates who offer FM have been predicted an A grade in it. For UCL i dont think you need to have FM but for Cambridge i think its a neccessity. All of the people in my school who got offers from Cambridge (6) for Economics were doing A2 FM

but if you're doing 4 subects including FM you can get 3As without gaining an A in FM.

11 A*s and maths A2, further maths AS (which i'm doing this year so i havent actually got the results yet), french AS, economics AS, english AS and general studies AS, and i got As in all of those.
further maths AS is not too bad, you should probably be able to manage it even if you're not that mathematical because i think it only gets really hard when you start doing FP2 and FP3.
good luck :-)

AS Further Maths is easier than A2 Maths since most people dodge the harder modules i.e do FP1 + two applied modules (of course i never did this :p: ).
If you can, do the pure modules since they will be more useful for uni-- the applied ones are practically useless for Econ.

The problem is, however, that a lot of the time teachers choose the modules for you, and for the sake of higher grades force you to do applied (read: easier) modules.


EDIT: That's why I'm also doing Additional Further Maths (AS), to be able to do FP3 (as well as FP1 and FP2).

How is your course going? I remember all the self teaching and UCAS application troubles you went through. Is it greener over there?

Some of it is useful apparently. But if you have the choice of doing applied vs pure modules, then do as many pure as possible as that's far more useful.
