    Maths to A-level or equivalent is fundamental to studying engineering. Is it possible for you to take up the subject? A foundation year is another option.

    Not without A-level maths no. There is a reason they expect you to have it, you would really struggle without (take it from a chemical engineering student). On the plus side several unis offer foundation years for those who want to study chem eng and don't have maths (manchester, nottingham, Birmingham, Aston etc). It's only an extra year and usually flies by.

    Go through the list of universities that offer chemical engineering and then search their websites for foundation years (they're usually integrated into the degree). Apply where you think you would be best suited and have met their entry requirements.

    Imperial won't let you do any engineering without maths whatsoever. full stop.

    as mentioned previously, go on UCAS and search for foundation courses.

    Southampton does foundation. Imperial is really strict. they even ask for certain modules in maths. so your chances at imperial is probably zero unless you take a year out to do maths a level which is quite possible.
