    Maybe but As FM would help get into Oxbridge plus your GCSEs while good aren’t the best but still definitely try because there is a good chance

    Cambridge, maybe. Oxford care a lot about GCSEs and I personally know multiple people with 11/12 A* at GCSE, 4 predicted A*s at A level, work exp, good personal statements, trained for interviews and still didn't get in to oxford. Your choice, but just keeping it real.

    Oxford don't have a straight Economics course. They offer Economics and Management, and PPE. Both are among their toughest courses to get into.

    If you are realistically on target for 4 A*s then yes you can be competitive for Economics at Cambridge, or PPE/E&M at Oxford.

    Other aspects of your application will also be important including any pre-interview admissions assessments/test, the interview, any submitted work, etc, etc.
