it depends because if you have maths it will be much better. The subject combinations would match and universities would look for students who do related subjects to gain the skills beneficial for the degree. For example, my A levels are Maths, Economics, and History.

Yes you can, but your uni choices will be limited as more unis require maths than ones which dont

A Level Maths & GCSE Maths - two very different things. I really do think you should take Maths if you want to go into Economics.

I'm a 3rd year Economics uni student so I can tell you that maths is pretty important at degree level for economics. The very best unis you can study economics without maths a-level are Nottingham, Edinburgh, Exeter and Leeds. Don't get me wrong they're pretty good unis generally but it means you won't be able to apply to any of the ones like Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, Warwick, Bristol, Durham, Kings, Bath, Manchester, etc. So you'd be limiting yourself a bit but it depends on what sort of unis you want to go to.

GCSE -> AS jump is minimal.

AS level begins with stuff like index laws and expanding brackets (seriously).

There is a lot of overlap with GCSE content.

AS -> A2 is a bigger jump, but keep on top of your work and you will be just fine.
