    My school told me to drop maths A level and told me to do AS maths, I also do product design A- level and double engineering as tech level which is equivalent to 2 A-levels, what Engineering curse will I be able to do? And what universities accept AS maths?

    Why are you dropping maths? Most unis will ask for a level maths. Drop product design instead.

    Dropping maths isn't a good idea if you want to study engineering. I'm sure most courses require a full A-level or equivalent in maths, although there might be some exceptions.

    most of the best unis that offer engineering require a-level maths...plus if it's too hard now your going to be in for a shock if you actually DO study engineering ..since a lot of math is involved! >_< i would drop the product design instead.

    Basically I'm in year 12, and I went to maths A-level lessons and it's hard for me, so the teachers said I can revise AS maths in year 12 and do the AS maths exam in the end of year 13,
    But I will be doing double engineering and product design, but what courses will I be able to do and what unis will accept AS maths

    From what I've seen, unis will either want the full A level or not be fussed. An AS level just puts you at a point where it's like: Why didn't you do the full A level?

    It would likely also preclude you from any foundation years.

    I'd say stick with the full A level, and if you do end up doing badly, take it over 3 years. Otherwise you're going to limit your university choices massively or you will have to do the foundation year in which case you're learning higher level (albeit less) Maths in a much shorter time frame.

    You'd have to look for unis that don't require maths at all. Those that do will want A level maths.

    That said, if you find A level maths hard then you seriously need to rethink your degree choice. Engineering is mostly maths so it seems like an odd choice.

    Why do you want to study Engineering at university? There's a lot of maths, and you will certainly be covering topics from A-level and beyond at university.
