Hi guys, I've always been interested in doing engineering at uni however, recently petroleum engineering has caught my attention. I do take AS physics (hopefully I get the grades so I can continue to A2) but I do not take Chemistry or Maths. I'm only in my AS year but it's too late in the year to change my options now. So my question is will this eliminate my hope of studying petroleum engineering at uni? If it doesn't what could I do to boost my chances as I would probably be behind academically compared to others... Should I do like a foundation year etc?

I'm sorry to say without maths you will need to do a foundation year. With all engineering you need maths, if you knew you wanted to do engineering, you should have known that you need maths for all engineering. You won't get into many if not any engineering course without a foundation year without taking maths. Maths is the most important part in engineering.

Edit : Without maths A level you will have to go a foundation year.
