Extra year at sixth form (Year 14) Watch

Report Thread starter 8 years ago
I am currently in year 1, studying Biology, Chemistry, Geography and English Lit and Lang; choosing these subjects as i didn't know what i wanted to study at university. Now i really want to do an mechanical or general engineering course for university, however you need maths and physics. So i was planning on dropping biology and geography at the end of the As year, and then taking physics and maths, and (chemistry and english to A2) in the second year. Meaning that i will have to spend a third year at sixth form to complete maths and physics to A2.

My main issues are is this going to limit my chances to getting into a good university, also if there was any other solutions into getting onto a good uni course for engineering without the extra year.
