I study chemistry, computer science and economics and has always been interested in computer science along economics. UCL has the exact course I want to do combining the two subjects. However it requires an A in maths and I did not know I needed to study maths. I’m predicted A* A A. Will it still be possible to get in?

Well you don't meet the entry requirements so no.... Almost all top universities require maths for economics, I'm sure basically all require it for CS. The best uni you can get into for Econ without maths is Nottingham.

Surely you knew that economics and computer science were quantitative subjects, thus required maths to study?

There are tons of good unis to apply to that do not require A level Maths

-Nottingham Uni (AAB)
-Lancaser Uni (AAB but ABB in your case)
-Leeds uni (AAA)
-QMUL (ABB)
-Uni of Liverpool
-Kent Uni
-UEA
-Loughborough (for Econ)
-Leicester Uni
There are still alot more, PLSS do your research and don't let anyone put you off from studying your dream course bc you didn't study A level Maths. Just Practice and Work on your Maths and you'll be fine. Good luck!!
