Hi Im in year 12 was hoping to study economics at uni (Oxford, Durham or St. Andrews hopefully) I’m doing alevel maths, history and psychology. I wasn’t originally planning on taking maths but was forced to and ended up loving it. This has made me want to do an economics degree in attempt to mix maths with essay writing however I don’t have further maths so am not sure how likely I am to get on an economics course without it. I got straight 9s at gcse and am predicted A*A*A* at alevel (I’m also doing that oxnet course if that is helpful). Will I have any chance of getting in without FM or am I best changing to do economics with something eg PPE ?

Look mate, ur gcses are good enough for oxf which is rare. Apply e and m since not having f maths for that is calm, that course is not that mathematical compared to camb/lse. To prepare, make sure u get 3a* predictions, tsa prep and read as much econ as u can. That’s my opinion anyways
