    Do I need to do D.T. at A level in order to study Automotive engineering at uni, because I really would rather do english lit.

    Well i'm doing maths, further maths, physics and chemistry and all my careers advisors told me that that would be enough for engineering. Don't base your decision on just me though, I haven't decided what field I want to specialise in yet and I haven't started my a-levels yet.

    I would wait for other opinions and check university websites to see what subjects they advise.

    No it isn't, because not all schools offer DT A-level so it'd be unfair.

    If you look at university websites they are much more concerned about physics and maths.

    My subjects for AS will be Maths (and Further Maths later on), Physics, Chemistry and Philosophy.

    thanx 4 the help.

    The paperwork with D.T. would be too much too handle on top of the others.

    Ive mananged to get into Nottingham University (one of the best for engineering) with just maths, physics and electronics, so DT is definetly not needed

    DT is NOT needed. Maths is Vital for all types of engineering and Physics is vital in most engineering courses.

    Someone with Maths,Physics,DT has the same chance of getting into a engineering course as someone with maths, physics, history.

    so NO, DT is not a ''must''

    Maths, Physics and Chemistry will get you onto any engineering courses in that area and similar areas.

    Of course not.
    All my friends who are studying engineering in Top universities (such as Cambridge, Oxford, IC...) didn't have D.T. a-level. Most of them studied Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry.
