    I've never really known what Uni course I'd like to study and never thought it was vital to be sure of it at this stage (doing gcse's).

    I've found out about Chemical Engineering and after looking into it more, It's definitely my type of thing

    The A-Levels I've chosen are:
    Maths
    Chemistry
    Physics
    Economics

    Should I take up Further Maths instead of Economics? Or just leave it as it is being as I might change my mind about what I aspire to do

    I'm aiming to go into mechanical engineering and I currently do AS maths, physics, further maths and a BTEC engineering if you want to go into engineering I would recommend further maths due to the mechanics units I would say only do further maths if you want to do it as it is hard and you have to be able to understand a lot of the maths as you have to do proofs and show thats.

    Would Further Maths be of more use to me than Economics for an Engineering degree?
    I love Maths but I'm just not crazy about it

    Further will help, but learning it at this level is a hassle and a waste of time, economics wont help at all in engineering.

    Further maths would definitely be more useful but I think you need to look at what you would do in further maths if you picked it and talk to a maths teacher about if it's a good option for you. For further maths you don't have to be crazy about it but you do have to be determined to work in it for a good grade as it is by far my hardest subject especially since I did an A2 unit even though I am doing AS levels at the moment as I am in year 12.

    Economics isn't of any use to engineering, whereas further maths directly covers a lot of the content from the maths modules in engineering. So, yes, further maths is a lot more useful.
