    They're pretty spot on for engineering. Most ask for maths and a science.

    There's a 4th subject I'm doing but I'm pretty bad at it . Bad as in BAD . I'm pretty sure I won't pass it . If I'm lucky I'll get D or E. I hate revising for it and rather would revise maths or physics. I'm thinking of dropping it so close to the exams , btw it's a science . Any advice. UMS marks ar from

    I'd guess AAAD looks weird on a CV (my GCSE German grade certainly sticks out, to the point I don't mention it)

    It depends what your aims are. In terms of employment it won't make a lot of difference, more so I'd guess with university applications, but even then probably won't be detrimental to getting in.

    If you're applying for maths, and have an A(*) in maths and further maths, I don't think they'll be too bothered about you dropping, say, chemistry to make sure your maths grades were up there.

    I'm thinking something along the lines of comp sci or engineering . So if chem is not involved in it it should be fine right? So Manchester Durham Warwick will be fine with that ??👍👍👍

    Aim for AAA. Even if you think you will only get ABB, aim for AAA.
