    Hi
    I have chosen mathematics, further maths, design and technology and geography, for a level, but i have taken an interest in engineering more specifically civil engineering. I know the basics in physics but not to good, so is physics necessary for civil engineering. Also are there any universities that does not require physics as an a level for civil engineering.

    I know that UCL doesn't require it, but most good universities will require physics.

    I know people who do civil without it but they had to self teach the whole a level in the first term basically to be able to do the uni work so i wouldn't say it's that advisable. i know QUB doesn't require it.
    some unis also offer a foundation course in engineering before the degree so that's be a good choice if you lack physics.

    Some unis ask for A2 Maths and Physics and some don't, they just ask for Maths. As long as you do mechanics modules then it's fine. I'm a first year civil and I didn't do physics at all A level. I did A2 further maths instead (M1,M2,M3)

    What Uni you at?

    Also how did you incorporate all 3 M modules into an ALevel Maths ?
