I dont think economics at a level is usually in the entry requirements as not all colleges offer it as a level. If you got an A in economics you should be fine, however further maths would be a good a level too.

Yeah definately, the most important subject is Maths - if you got that (which you have), then its fine.

Oxford and LSE wouldnt discriminate you if you dont have an A-level in Economics, but they do discriminate if you have non-traditional subjects such as Media Studies etc

Only if you've got loads. I have loads of friends at Ox who have Media Studies, Sociology etc as one of their three A-levels.

Anyway, I'm doing PPE at Oxford and don't have economics A-level. I don't think it's hindered me, and mostly the people who did A-level think it was useless.

LSE definately would, Oxford far less so.

Maths is far more important than economics..and they don't like business studies, media, sports studies etc. Nice traditional A Levels with Maths and they won't give a stuff if you have economics..which is the subject you'd be studying. I think it's a bit silly
