    Hey, im actually interested in Mechanical Engineering but didnt take Physics A-level just because i thought id enjoy biology a bit more. I really enjoy maths and like the practical side of mech eng alongside the global opportunities available with this degree.

    Im currently studying: Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Cambridge pre-u Global Perspectives (GPR). Took a look at unis and narrowed down the ones that dont require Physics A-level.

    Birmingham, Nottingham, Exeter, Sheffield, Swansea, Liverpool, Sussex and Leicester.

    Just wanted to ask, if i do end up doing mech eng, how hard will it be considering my lack of physics knowledge compared to the rest and is this a good decision? Ive taken a look at Chemical engineering and the work doesnt interest me as much.

    Not too difficult, unis usually go over all the relevant A level physics stuff within first semester.
