    Hi guys.

    Im a year 12 going into year 13. I want to srudy engineering at university and was wondering if i did the MAT and got a good grade, would it be beneficial to me in anyway. As i have heard of reduced grades for the offer however i am not sure if this would apply to aeronautcial engineering.

    I am thinking of applying to Cambridge, Bath, Imperial and a few others that i havent decided on yet.

    I am taking Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry and I am currecntly predicted 2A* and 2A but i think i can push it up to 3A*

    In my edexcel maths i have completed the following modules: c1-4, m1,s1,fp1 thus far.

    I am thinking that if it would positively benefit me in any way and give me a bit of a buffer just incase the worst happens, then i am willing to put in the work. But i dont want to spend time preparing only to realise that it wont help me in the long run.

    I know you guys arent necessarily experts and this may be a niche kinda question but any input would be appreciated

    You didn't even say where you're applying or your grades.

    I have editted my orginal post to include this information

    You can only take the MAT if you apply for maths (or CS) at certain unis.
