Hi Guys,

At the moment i'm in the first year of sixth form. I study A level Maths and Physics and also Chemistry. Furthermore I do a Btec in Music Tech. I've thought about dropping Chemistry as the workload from the A levels and the Btec is getting tough. I don't enjoy Chemistry that much and I have just thought to drop it.

Would I still be able to get into Design Engineering with just 2 A-Levels and my Btec?

I'm just confused.

Thanks for reading.

What do universities want for entry requirements onto design engineering courses?

I got this of the Loughborough Univeristy Website just as a guide.

For MEng
AAA including Maths and either Physics, Design and Technology or Engineering. Science A Levels – Practical skills element required? Yes

For BEng
ABB including Maths and either Physics, Design and Technology or Engineering at A2 or Physics and Design and Technology at A2 with Maths AS level Grade A Science A Levels – Practical skills element required? Yes

And how does that match up with your expectations?

If this is the case then apply carefully as some universities for your chosen course only accept 3 A-Levels and no BTEC. It's possible yes depending on where you apply to.

Contact Lboro, and any other universities you are interested in, and ask them about your A-level and BTEC choices.
