    physics is needed. chemistry and biology is up to you depending on triple or double science.
    graphics is something im not sure about. business is up to you. economics is not for GCSE level.
    maths is needeed and english also to get you in.
    R.s is compulsory in GCSE now. Physics, biology and chemistry are sciences.

    All you need is maths and physics but I think if I had my time again I'd have done art as well (there's a lot of drawing involved). But anything can be useful! Since becoming a structural engineer I've tried to work on my languages and read books based on business, psychology, philosophy, history, geography and english language. There's lots of aspects to the job.

    Yeah try and do GCSE's that allow you to continue mainly maths and physics at A-level, THOSE are important. Like Totally_Pissed said, all you really need is Maths, English and Science in GCSEs.

    Your GCSE choices won't really matter. Make sure you do well in Maths and Physics (Or Double Science if you do that instead) and also make sure you have a good grade in English, despite not being needed for the degree, GCSE English is so important.

    Then for A Level you should do Physics, Maths, maybe Chemistry and/or maybe Further Maths (depending on what type of engineering you want to do). If you don't need FM or Chem then your 3rd/4th could be something of your choice.

    I would definitely take a language because you can travel and do a engineering job...
