    So basically I'm currently studying biology chemistry and economics a levels. i originially intended to study biochemistry or something life science related and university, however recently i became interested in engineering, but to do this at uni i need to study maths a level.

    So i decided that once i finish studying my current 3 a levels, I will take a year out to self study maths and then take the exam. only problem is applying to uni....im not too clear about the whole process but what I do know is that after my as exams, early in year 13 I will have to apply to uni and do the whole interview stuff. it is possible to apply at any time in your life but its quite complicated.... if I am doing maths a level then when do I apply to uni? Before or after I take the maths exam? I heard theres some kind of maturity thing when it comes to people applying over the age of 18 or 19? if I apply to uni for engineering before the maths exam what will they base my offer on since I won't have a predicted grade or as grade for maths?

    Any answers will be very appreciated, thanks

    Hi thanks for the quick reply. Yh i checked engineering degrees across many unis, from russel group to non russel group and every single one require maths a level usually along with any of the 3 science's. But maths is basically a must.

    As for what kind of engineering degree, I'm pretty open to biomedical or chemical engineering, though not every uni does this. A common type is mechanical engineering which also interests me. Though the problem of how and when to apply is still bugging me regardless of which one i do
