Hi. I hope someone can help. I would like to get into engineering (not sure what area, probably not civil) but find physics hard. am taking it at as but want to drop at a2. Does anyone know of any courses or universities that will accept me with just as physics?

what are you taking in alevel?

I think if you find physics hard you will find engineering hard.

Mechanical Engineering, Kings will take anyone with AAB including maths.

The stuff you are learning in A2 physics will be the basis of your engineering degree. I would seriously consider sticking with it. If you want to be an engineer, you will have to learn it eventually.
If you are struggling with it, try seeking help rather than dropping it

Marine Engineering, you get taught physics properly at a maritime academy, get paid to do so and have no tuition fees.
I know I keep saying this, but I am amazed that no one takes this up as a career. I mean you get a degree for nothing and get paid a salary to study.
You have to have a basic understanding of physics and maths though, like most things in engineering. But I came to study Engineering with A levels in:-
No physics or maths or other atypical engineering subjects, this is a good route, honest!

I can't really vouge for anything since i'm only 2 and a half weeks into my Civil Engineering course at Swansea.. i'd really recommend pursuing physics to A2 as a fourth A-level. I don't think it would hurt with say an AABC prediction for example?
