    I am in year 13 now. I did Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Biology. I took the AS and A2 exams for Maths and Further Maths in one year, year 12. I did good in some modules and bad in others. However, my school did not cash in the results so I never received actual qualifications for the A-levels. I am definitely working for a good grade for the Cambridge University pre-interview assessment. My problem is what do I have to do now to actually get offers from university. Do I take an additional A-level to broaden my application and what would be the best subject to take?
    Any help is much appreciated, thank you.

    Can't say I am the expert but here goes. I suspect you will need to give your module scores in the exams you took. What were they?

    A levels. Cambridge on the whole prefer A*A*A > A*AAA. So don't think you have to do loads. It is better to do well in Maths, Physics and Further Maths only.

    To get offers? Show your wider academic reading and relevant extra curricular to demonstrate your interest in engineering to all universities.

    Interview "I want to study engineering. Org" is a useful resource. Make sure you prepare.
    Good luck to you
