    OK so let me start from the beginning.

    Skip to the last paragraph for the short story.

    I've just started AS levels and when applying my college normally makes us pick 4 a levels however because this year if you picked further Maths they make you pick 5 a levels because recently at the end of year 12 people have began to drop the subject so they make us pick 5 so we have something to fall back on. Anyway that's beside the point.

    So in the end I picked Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and computing.

    However when I started A levels I found it really hard to keep on top of my work so I asked the college if I could drop computing but they said no sorry basically so that's not an option.

    Now in the future I would like to study chemical engineering and the subjects required are Maths, Chemistry.

    So I was wondering would it matter if I failed an unrelated as level like computing and would it effect my application to Uni

    Regarding entry requirements to a course, universities only really care about what you got in the subjects necessary to that course and what your predicted grades are. So in your case, so long as you do well in Maths and Chemistry and get predicted grades that meet their entry requirements, they won't particularly care about your grade in computing. Also entry requirements tend to be for 3 A-Levels, and you're doing 4 so you'll be fine.

    Hope this helps!
