    I'm currently doing chem, economics and maths.
    Would I be able to do chemical engineering in uni?
    like instead of physics I did economics, would that put me at a disadvantage??

    It's very unlikely that you would be accepted without A-level Physics. Most unis specify Physics as a mandatory subject for any engineering courses.

    I understand however some don't require it? like imperial for example?

    Phyics would have been nice to see in your list of subjects, certainly better than Economics for Engineering (doesnt really matter which discipline). The offers I got this year, 2 needed physics (Warwick and Cambridge), 1 wanted chem (UCL), 1 wanted both (Imperial College) and the other wanted either physics or chem (Loughborough). If you do well and pick your universities well you should be fine, but Imperial and the like could well be out of reach I fear because of the lack of physics.
