    I am coming to the end of my first year at sixth form now and a requirement in my college is to start Personal statements ASAP. So I did and now I'm starting to worry.

    I wish to do a degree in EEE (Electrical & Electronic Engineering) and, like many students, I researched the entry requirements for the course long before I started my A-levels. On many uni websites, I found that Maths and Physics were essential while the last A-Level wasn't stated so I assumed that I could chose any subject that would benefit me. History was one of my favoured GCSE subjects so I chose that. My fourth AS Level subject was CW (Creative Writing).

    I can't quite believe that it took a whole year and a personal statement to make me realise whether or not my A-levels are right for the degree that I wish to do in Uni :/

    Do you think that I could still get into EEE with my A-levels right now? & would History and CW put any Uni off?

    Your application probably won't be competitive at the most sought after universities but with good grades in maths and physics you should still be able to secure a place at a decent enough university.

    You'll be fine then. You have maths and physics, and a strong, traditional, third subject in history.
