    I am doing A levels in maths, chemistry, biology and physics , but i want to study aeronautical or mechanical engineering at uni. How good a chance do i have of getting into e.g. imperial, without further maths.

    I have seen other threads like this one, and aside from picking up further maths AS, is there anything else i could do to improve my application?

    So would taking the AS with mostly mechanics modules help much?
    Thanks

    Better than nothing but FP2 plus FP3 will be far superior

    Imperial does say that they recommend you doing further maths. For some subjects it is required. Most universities will not require it though, including some very good ones like Southampton.
