    Hi, I'm a first year student at Loughborough for Chemical Engineering.

    The answer to your question depends completely on what you enjoy! I can give you some pointers as to what it's all about though.

    First of all, the Chemistry content is minimal. Currently stands at about 30% of the course and I've heard this from 2nd and 3rd year students.

    The biology will give you a big boost in biochem but a lack of physics will leave you challenged by much of the engineering questions. This isn't a problem, providing you are proficient at maths you'll succeed, but if you found physics hard going then you may want to think about it for a bit. Thermodynamics is one of the hardest aspects of the course and requires a lot of symbol manipulation and the ability to spot relationships between variables, in often lengthy and convoluted equations.

    AAA is good and will leave you with good University options. No worries there 😊

    Overall I'd have said go for it, the graduate prospects are fantastic and who doesn't want to be able to point to a pharmacy and say, "I helped put some if the medicine in there", it's fulfilling, challenging work and I can highly recommend it.

    Do you like physics? Chem eng is mostly maths and physics.
