    I got my AS results today and i got ABCC in (Fine Art, Geography, Maths and Physics) I narrowly missed an A in geography and a B in maths. I want to do civil engineering at uni and I'm stuck on whether to drop Art or Geography, I love them both. Maths and physics are pretty much on all entry requirements for civil engineering. I've been looking at Swansea university which has entry requirements of BBB and others such as Liverpool and Birmingham.

    are my AS results bad?
    Which subject should I drop?
    Which Uni Entry requirements could I realistically look at? (for example ABB/ AAB)

    I'm planning to do at least 3 retakes, thanks for all your help

    If you want to do engineering at a somewhat respected uni probably needs A's in Maths and Physics. Don't want to dampen your spirits.

    If you turn those grades into a BBB or better at A level, you should be able to get onto a civil engineering degree at a good university. I have friends with worse grades in decent unis doing engineering.

    Good luck!
