    Hi,
    I am currently studying A2 Physics, Business and ICT. I used to do Maths too, however, I failed it at AS. I have always been unsure about what to do with my life, but have been interested in Civil/Architectural Engineering (and I think my personal statement for these is rather decent).
    The problem is that I am rather bad at maths, and the majority of these Civil and Architectural Engineering courses require maths. I am worried that I will struggle with the maths side of things on the courses that do not say maths is required (but they do say a maths-related subject is i.e. Physics).
    I am also worried that these courses may not be as high of quality, and that if i do choose them, I will regret it. Overall, i just want to know if there's anything else I can do with the subjects I have? Even if this means completely changing my personal statement.
    Thank you!

    TL;DR - What uni courses can I do with my A Levels, should I persevere through engineering courses even if I'm bad at maths?

    you could do a physics + business as a joint degree? google it and see if that's something that interests you? if not consider looking at foundation years? if you failed AS maths, a foundation year could be ideal for you as it helps you get your maths to a good level and allows you to pursue engineering (without writing a completely different personal statement and allows you to go for engineering)

    as for whether or not you'll like engineering, i would have a look at the modules on uni websites and see if anything excites you.

    best of luck!

    I think you might not be able to do Engineering though , but Physics 50/50 and Business yes.
