    I want to do mechanical engineering at uni and am currently taking these A levels:

    Maths,
    Physics,
    Computing,
    Biology.

    I've already started A levels so it's too late to choose further maths - I would take it now if I could change but at the time when I chose my A levels I didn't think I'd do engineering and so didn't think doing further maths would be necessary.

    So, my question is, when I have to drop either Biology or Computing, which one should I drop? Which is better to have when applying to do mechanical engineering at uni?

    IMO keep whichever you think you'll get the better grade in.

    There will be some computing related modules (e.g. http://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/un...ails/MACE20042) but the A level computing won't help you as much as you might think and they'll be teaching it from scratch anyway since they can only assume prior study of maths and physics.
