what other unis should i apply to for economics? (international)

my top 3 choices are oxford, kcl and ucl. my predicted grades are A*A*A*A (math, econ, physics, IT) i got 4A in AS level and 7A*1A in igcse. my supercurriculars are kinda weak so i don't have much hope of getting an offer from my top 3. Any suggestions for where i should consider applying as a backup?
KCL is a bit marginal for economics, their course has only been around for about 4 years and before that economics was only taught via political economy or the management department.

There are probably better courses elsewhere than KCL, e.g. Bristol, Bath, Nottingham, Warwick, Edinburgh, etc. Those might also be worth considering for your other options.

If you're applying for PPE at Oxford, you might want to consider PPE at LSE, as that course at LSE does not put as much emphasis on further maths I gather.

Exeter - avoid LSE it's toxic and the course at KCL is new.
