So I just received my GCSEs (didn't work for them at all tbh) and got this:

Maths- 7 (154/240)
Eng Lang- 8
Eng lit- 7
Bio- B
Chem- A
Phys- A (358/400)
Spanish- D
Product design- B
EconomicsandBusiness- A
History- A*
Religious studies- A*

3a* 5a 2b d

I really want to do civil engineering at a good uni like Imperial, UCL or bath. Not interested in oxbridge.

I know that if I work hard I can achieve a*s in subjects like maths and physics.

I'm planning to do maths physics economics and chemistry at a level.

1. How does the admissions process for civil engineering work?
2. Is there an interview stage?
3. Are my a level choices fine for unis like imperial and UCL?
4. Any general tips and advice for applying to civil engineering?

I know this is a lot to ask for but I would really truly appreciate a detailed response. Thanks for reading this.

1. It's like most other subjects. You apply normally through UCAS, those universities that interview will invite you to interview if they wish, and you'll get your responses once they've made their minds up.
2. I think Imperial and Oxbridge are the only institutions that interview for engineering, but universities will make it clear on their websites whether they interview or not so you can check directly.
3. Again, you can check this directly with all of the universities on their website but as long as you've got Physics and Mathematics, you should be fine. Imperial says that M2 is desirable for Maths. Further Maths would be more useful than Economics or Chemistry but it's not a requirement.
4. Show an extracurricular interest in the subject, certainly by reading. If your school offers the Engineering Education Scheme then you should 100% apply.
