    Hey guys so, I’m going Alevel Maths and physics and a BTEC Nationals Diploma in Engineering (2 grades) and I have emailed all my unis
    Southampton
    Leeds
    Loughborough
    Surrey
    Sussex

    They all got back to and gave me grade requirements only in maths and engineering (this is to do a Maths BSc degree) the grade requirements were pretty much 2 distinctions and an A minimum in maths. My main question really, and if someone can give me an in depth answer, is that, what does that truly mean for my physics a-level in a sense that, what do I do with it now that the unis gave me those requirements which do not include physics?

    So the offer is distinction distinction A, in which case i'd expect you just need to pass physics but contact them again if you aren't sure.

    Did you apply via UCAS?

    What, exactly, are their Offer Requirements?

    At the very least you will be expected to complete your Physics course.

    Via email, the specific university undergraduate admissions told me that I will need a minimum DD in engineering and an A in maths to partake in the Maths BSc course

    So you haven't applied yet. You need to apply via UCAS and see what the actual offer conditions are. It's quite possible they won't include Physics in your offer, but don't presume and don't drop it without asking your universities first.
