I can't do further maths (Urgent advice needed)

i really want to study economics at a top uni like oxbridge, UCL, LSE etc however my school don't have enough students to run the further maths course as its just me who wants to do it. im worried that unis wont care that my school won't give it to me and so i am considering doing it privately but im scared that its too risky. what should i do? will my application be impacted negatively if i dont have further maths?

I would've thought someone who's capable enough to do further maths a-level would be capable enough to go onto LSE's BSc Economics course page, click on entry requirements and read that they have a whole mini section explaining that your application won't be negatively effected if your school doesn't offer further maths as long as your tutor/referees disclose it

All schools in England can offer F Maths so your comment may not be relevant.

Then your school can offer FMaths through AMSP including tuition.

So a private school is refusing to teach you? That's disgusting - your parents are paying. Complain!

Anyway you can self-teach using these resources and others.
