    Hi.

    I'm in my last year of A levels doing Maths, History and Geography.

    I've applied to do History at uni, and I have offers.

    However I've always been unsure of what I've wanted to do, but now I've become very interested in engineering.

    I have looked at the entry requirements and most say they only need maths.

    Could I apply to do Civil Engineering through clearing?

    My AS levels were AAAD in Maths, Geography, History and Economics respectively.

    My A level predictions are A*AB in Maths, Geography and History respectively.

    Thanks

    Potentially you could apply - although there's no need to wait until Clearing you can use Extra to apply in a less panicked timescale.

    Contact the university's you're looking at directly and explain your situation and a bit of background about your interest in civil engineering. Ask if they'd accept an application from you via Extra. It would be worth putting together a quick PS (even just the notes section on https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/per...ake_some_notes would be worthwhile before you get in touch) - universities will want to be sure that you understand what you're applying for and that you have the interest and enthusiasm (and ability) to make it through 3/4 years of a degree.

    If you have positive responses from a few universities pick your favourite, decline your offers and apply to your favourite through Extra.

    not many know you need need a level physics for some civil engineering courses, the bsc courses are more easy to entry than the m.eng ones, which need higher grades and often but not always physics, b.sc or even b.eng would be a better choice.

    Depends what university. My partner has applied to do Building services engineering at leeds beckett with DDDD In BTEC's ICT and Business and got an unconditonal offer (as he already has his grades). However for the other Uni's hes applied for require him to do a foundation year that covers science and physics.

    Most universities don't require Physics for Civil Engineering. Examples are Bath, Birningham, Bristol, Exeter, Liverpool, Loughborough, Manchester, Nottingham and Swansea

    * on the condition that you're doing both m1 and m2

    OP hasn't mentioned his/her modules yet.

    That being said, UCL doesn't even require maths. But they usually only accept around 3 applicants who didn't take maths at A evel per year. And they're give extra tutoring provided by the university to catch up
