Depends on what you want to do in the future. I know of people who became chartered engineers after studying physics of that helps.

I'm interested in doing something finance related, so want to know which subject would give me the greatest chance.
Cheers for the reply

It makes no difference. Study the course you most enjoy.

The problem is I haven't studied engineering at a level (don't think you can) so I'll look at the course structure again to try and figure things out

Very few engineering students have studied it at A-level.

Just seems a load of applicants do finance and so I thought a more maths based degree would make me a better applicant compared to them

I don't think that an engineering or physics degree makes you a better candidate for a finance job than a finance related degree.

If you want something more mathematical, have you considered a joint maths and finance degree of some sort? Or maybe economics?

How can you work somewhere in finance with a physics or engineering degree? Calculating the cash inflow of air resistance?

Are you interested in engineering? Are you interested in the topics covered in the courses you have researched?

There's no point studying something unless you think you will be interested in it.

By the way, one route would be to start on a general engineering course and this would enable you to specialise as you progress through the course.

If you want to work in Physics do a Physics degree, if you want to work in Engineering do an Engineering degree and if you want to work in Finance do a Finance degree. People wanting to work in Finance have Finance degrees for a reason.

Define "Finance".

If you mean IB you don't need a degree in economics, accountancy or business management to be extremely successful in IB.

Physics or Engineering would be a perfectly good background.

Ever heard the phrase "engineers are the monkeys of physicists"? That might be a reason to pick one over the other. *wink wink nudge nudge*
