    I am really interested in Civil Engineering however I don't think I have studied anything to with CE at A-level or equivalent. At GCSE, I got a C in Maths and English but a D in Science. I did Media Studies (got a C) and BTEC EX Diploma for Business (DDM) at Sixth Form.

    What are my options are and what to do? I don't want to go into a subject without having any of the groundwork and overall gist of the subject. I'm 21 btw.

    An engineering degree is nearly all an applied maths degree. If you're not good at maths and science you shouldn't be considering it.

    That is true, maybe I should look into different types of engineering.

    All types of engineering are gonna focus heavily on science and maths.

    Is there a way you could improve your maths and science (mainly physics)? There are also apprenticeships too.
