    Or do you know someone in your course who did maths but didnt do physics because a lot of unis dont ask for physics but most people seem to have studied physics. I dont do Physics or any other sciences but i am doing maths and I feel i might not be accepted when i apply because the other students are a lot smarter

    I think you'll really struggle applying for engineering with no sciences, do you offer further maths as well as maths?

    i am doing spanish, geography and maths and most unis say that you need maths and one science and geography is usually on the list even though its not a proper science subject.

    Most do specify Physics...

    But at the very least you will need M1 and M2 mechanics. Are you doing those?

    What grades are you expecting in your A-levels?

    That's what most unis requirements looks like:
    A*AA including Maths and a Science subject (such as Physics, Further Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Geology and Geography). The A* must be in Maths or in the Science Subject. The third A-level cannot be General studies or Critical thinking.
    And some say that you just need mathematics

    I might do M1 next year and I don't know what to expect to be hones I just finished my AS and it was okay.

    Fair enough. Why ask then...

    Civil Engineering often goes into clearing so you might still have a shot.

    Otherwise, it would probably be good to have a backup option. Check out geology maybe.

    I don't know what the A-Level Geography course includes but if it contains a lot of geology aspects it might be looked on quite well as it's a decent part of the course. Physics would probably be preferred but it doesn't look like it's a necessity.

    It might be worth contacting a couple of admissions tutors and asking them what their view on it is?
