Is it possible to go into engineering with a science degree? Or do you need to do applied maths after your degree or something?

I like science, but I also would like to innovate. I feel like I can be an innovative person, but the maths throws me! I can make silly errors in core maths but my maths in physics is on point.

I do A2 Physics, Maths and Chemistry and will definitely bu studying these three subjects further at university.

It is a tricky one. Many engineering disciplines require pretty specific skill sets. You would be hard pushed to get into civil or process engineering without the relative degree. There are jobs on the periphery of these areas that strictly don't require degree skills but you would be more likely to enter as an apprentice rather than a fully blown graduate with a basic grounding of the subject in hand.

If your goal is to become an engineer, I would do an engineering degree. If you immediate goal is to study science for the joy of studying then go for it, but do so in the knowledge that your chosen career might be harder to obtain.

Good luck!
