    You will not get in with straight Maths to top universities.

    Minimum is further AS which must include M2 and M3.

    My advice was so a student gets in the comfort zone when you go to University.

    At university the teaching is non existent and this makes no sense to most students until they get there.

    Student last year went to Cambridge
    He did 16 modules only able to cash 15

    Current Student (applied to Cambridge, UCL, Southampton, Bristol, Bath)
    doing 9 modules.

    PS
    Top university is again very personal opinion
    Is Sheffield a top University? (example)
    Not in my opinion but it may be for the majority.

    there is a quote in this thread about universities and my opinion (a bit long to retype)

    Manchester is Russel Group so it is in the "premier league".
    I have made a football analogy in that thread.

    Premier league isnt really fair, it implies there's nothing good outside it. But the top unis are mostly RG true

    This is not about fair or no fair ..
    This is about a personal opinion and I am sure you have yours.

    Possibly dogmatic but I do not look at league tables, these are rubbish.
    It is all about branding and possibly more skewed towards internationally branding.

    My standards are perhaps too high.
    Top four Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, UCL
    Then Warwick, LSE, Bristol, Kings, Durham
    then the rest of the RG
    then the rest.


    Simply my opinion and I fully respect your if it differs from mine.

    M1 is enough - there is good teaching at uni in many Engineering degrees as some require lecturers to have teaching qualifications.

    Engineering degrees vary a lot and I would also look beyond RG if you are wanting to go into Industry.

    'Top' has many variables e.g. to get into F1 the top provider is Oxford Brookes not Oxbridge or Imperial.

    Im doing M1, M2,M3 and I dont see big jumps esp between M2 and M3 as some M3 topics are extensions of M2 ones. The rest of the topics like SMH and Hookes Law are all done in physics so I'd say that if you do physics and enjoy calculus then mechanics modules won't be exactly rocket science

    In terms of what the OP is saying, you dont have to them but I believe they will help you (atleast first year)

    To be honest, I did Physics A-level and only a very small part of it was useful (only a handful of topics) the rest was a waste of time really. I'm doing mechanical engineering.

    thats because I dont do physics after GCSEs
