    Hello, I am (hopefully) going to apply to the University of Cambridge next year and I wanted to know the typical offer for Engineering (MEng). My current A-Levels are Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry and the EPQ. I will be continuing with 4 A-Levels.

    I checked the entry requirements on their website, however, it did not say which subjects the A*s are required in. I'm guessing the Colleges would offer A*A*A or A*A*AA with the A*s being in Maths and Further Maths?

    Thank you

    Typical offer is A*A*A. They may specify the subjects for the A*s. It varies by college and by applicant.

    Some colleges, notably Christ's and often Peterhouse, will also inckude a 1 in STEP I requirement.

    They don't. STEP II and III offers are only for Maths applicants.

    No problem.

    BTW, an advantage of picking a college asking for STEP is it makes obtaining an offer more likely. The disadvantage is it makes achieving it harder...

    It won't affect your overall chance of getting a place at Cambridge.

    jneill already posted the answer, but just to add that I got an offer of A*A*A, without any order, but I needed to get the grades in physics, maths and further maths. Did not require any STEP.
