    If you're doing engineering I would say if you're comfortable that you will get A*A*A in Maths, Physics and Further Maths, then do whatever you want on top of that.

    I think I read a forum somewhere saying Electronics isn't very valued as a subject anymore, but on the other hand knowledge about the field is going to be useful in an interview.

    Maybe send an email to the uni's admissions team and ask?
