    In a couple of months i will be choosing my A Levels, and i want to go into civil engineering. I am predicted A in physics, A in Math, A in Art, A in Chem, and B in ICT. Those are my important subjects. To be honest i think i will achieve those grades maybe a B in Art. But what subjects shall i do for A level my backup choice is to go into Architecture. Thanks.

    Your doing 5 Gcses? Or am I being an idiot?

    Anyway, as someone who asked the same question a few months ago, I can tell you the answer will be Maths, F. maths and Physics.

    Make sure you take Maths (with statistics or mechanics) and Physics. Further Maths preferably. These are the main ones you need, anything else is a small bonus in that professions direction

    You'll probably to then pick a mixture of Chemistry, Geography, History, Graphics/Res. Mat. for Civil

    Or

    You'll probably want to pick a mixture of Chemistry, Geography, History, Art, for Architecture

    So if i was you, i'd take maths physics further maths (which you need), chemistry (added science which they like + shows you're clever) and art (shows you can draw, because they like this whole 'architects and civil engineers working as one' theme now and keeps up your drawing abilities)

    Hope it helps

    Thanks for the advice it was really useful. I think i will be doing Math, Physics, Art and maybe Chem. To do F.Math at my 6th form you need an A*, but i think i will only get an A:rolleyes: .

    No Problem

    If you could be really that bothered, you can teach F. Maths yourself, two people in my year are doing it but its' a lot of work, note the A* need for it. But yeah it's not compulsory so no worries ;D
