    Maths + FM can follow the full maths first yr, full FM second year pattern. Tis not that absurd.

    But yeah, I've done C1-C4, M1, S1 and so I'm able to get an A* at AS because I've done the WHOLE A-Level maths in 1 year. I wouldn't be taking further maths if I couldn't count lmao.

    I think above all, I'm placing too much importance on getting into Imperial Which is what is holding me back from applying for Chemical Engineering because I'm scared I won't get a place at Imperial Right now, it's between Civil and Chemical :/

    I do Chem eng, so totally not biased.

    Basic summary.
    Mechanical engineers - Glorified Car Mechanics
    Electrical Engineering - Light switch makers
    Civil - Concrete / Tarmac enthusiasts
    Chemical Engineers - Dons.

    Be sensible. Pick Chemical Engineering.
    I like to look at this another way; who would be required first to keep a current society going? Can't do much without electricity. EEE wins.

    Anyone can botch a few circuits together. Did that in AS physics. I kid... Every engineering discipline has its unique purpose.

    This is a serious reply but its a well known fact that Civil Engineering is just for rent boys. Its the easiest by far out of all engineering disinclines, (i'm not sure if employers know that though).

    Example from my third yearad to a design project (every engineer in every discipline does). For me, a chemical engineer, it was to design a 100% recyclable methyl chloride plant. We had to work with civil engineers on it. What did they design you ask? A Lorry bay and a nature reserve (to offset carbon footprint). What a farce

    No that is no joke, true story.
