    Are Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry suitable A-levels to get into a Cambridge/ Imperial aerospace engineering course? And would taking an EPQ count for anything?

    I'd say they're the perfect A Levels. For STEM, EPQ is seen as less valuable, I think you'd get an Imperial Offer (If you have good grades), but EPQ might help with Cambridge, but I doubt it. Only do an EPQ if there's something you're really interested in exploring further.

    I did exactly those A-Levels without an EPQ and got offers for both

    Yes. But you can happily drop Chemistry... quality not quantity: A*A*A is required, not A*AAB.

    An EPQ is nice to have but will not be part of any offer.

    EPQ wouldn't count for much in terms of entry requirements but it will probably be useful for interviews, there are also a few universities which offer similar quality engineering courses that will drop their offers by a grade if you have an A in EPQ (although they also have grade requirements in the AAA-A*AA range so the usefulness of this for you is debatable, but at the same time you can't really predict A level grades when you're choosing A levels, so it's a good idea to consider that you will get predictions in that range).

    It also provides some very useful skills for university study.
