Im currently in year 12 on as level and im planning to go into engineering at uni, specifically aerospace/aeronautical/mechanical that area. Im currently studying Maths, Physics, Chemistry and economics. I am really struggling in Chemistry and in contrast doing okay in the other subjects. I reckon if i were to drop chemistry i could really focus on the other three bringing them up to A/A* grades however im concerned universitys might want a chemistry a level, please help!!!!

Engineering courses don't require Chemistry at A-level, but it might come as an advantage when competing with other applicants.

Only drop it if you do it likes it's hot.

Unless you're thinking of going into chemical engineering, which I'm assuming you're not, dropping chemistry won't disadvantage you in any way, and like you said, you can focus on doing better in three subjects, instead of trying to juggle four, with possibly less time being put into studying maths and physics.

id say drop economics instead and use the time to bring chemistry up because its a bit more relevant for the future (more possibilities), I don't think youd need chemistry but if you changed your mind or wanted to go into a slightly different branch you've got it there just in case

The thing is i will most definitely go for this area of engineering i wont be going for courses like chemical engineering or biomedical etc.

in that case drop it it wont affect getting into any unis for that side of engineering

Chemistry can be quite useful some areas of mechanical engineering. Economics would be the ideal one to drop, but if you're struggling with chemistry then it might in fact be a good idea to drop it in order to maintain your grade profile. You don't actually need chemistry to get into mechanical or aero engineering at uni, though.
