A few questions:

Chemical engineering: Which do universities prefer if you're doing further maths and chemistry; biology or physics?

Mechanical engineering: Can you do this without having done physics? (Note, I'm doing further maths so that's similar I suppose).

Genetic engineering: Is biology necessary if you do physics and chemistry?

For anyone wondering, I'm trying to decide my AS subjects. I've currently signed up for futher maths + all 3 sciences. But since I now want to do economics, I need to drop a science and I can't pick which. I like all of the 3 science courses above.

And as a side note, please don't point me to university websites. I have looked at them and they're generally unspecific. I'd prefer some real life examples.

Wouldn't this be better on the engineering forum?

Maybe but I was sort of hoping for a semi-discussion of whether to choose physics or biology. So I chose to post here. I'm also open to other science courses that arent necessarily engineering.

chemical engineering will prefer physics(many universities will actually require physics and not chemistry), some universities will accept no physics for engineering provided your maths and further maths A level includes mechanics modules, usually a minimum of three

I think my subject set was made for engineering :p:

Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics, Electronics...
I'm sure you could substitute Biology for Electronics if you wanted to do a more biological course.

Our school doesn't do electronics.

Yep, maths is compulsory & physics isn't, in most cases.
