    Right ok, I've just finished year 12 and got 4 Bs in Maths, Chemistry, History and Art. I'm planning to drop Art, and I'm hoping that I can work the other 3 up to As next year, because they were high Bs. Now, I've decided I want to do a Civil Engineering course at uni, but would not having physics put me at a disadvantage?

    I know a lot unis specify physics, but a lot also don't say what second subject they'd like, so would chemistry be ok as the science they ask for? I'm planning on taking M1 in maths next year, in addition to C3 and C4, so I'm hoping this will be satisfactory.

    Any help or advice would be appreciated

    The only way you'll really know is looking at university websites to see their entry requirements. If they only specify maths then you should be fine, but you can always consider self teaching AS or something in year 13

    You don't particularly need to have studied physics to do well in the course, but most universities do prefer you to have it. This is because a lot of the civil engineering topics/modules are based on the principles learnt in physics. Try to read up on the forces and mechanics side of things of the physics course. A lot of it is covered in maths M1 though, and if you can, take both M1 and M2.
