    If a subject is not 'required', then are Uni's not allowed to give you an offer requiring it? For example:

    http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...nts/index.html

    Scroll down around half way to find Economics & Management. They 'strongly prefer' Maths A-Level, but would they offer me AAA inc. Maths? This is just an example, my question is about Uni's in general too.

    Cheers.

    They can give offers depending on what subjects you're doing but they won't make an offer including something you're not doing. However, if you are doing it then they are within their rights to make an offer based upon it

    Would be quite harsh if they gave you an offer including a subject your didn't do Right, so even if they don't 'require' it, they could include it in the offer?
