    Hey I’m currently in year 10 but I am beginning to consider what i should take for A-Level.
    I want to become a civil engineer in the future.
    So that means I should take maths and physics.
    I am predicted an 8 in both of these for GCSE, but i am not sure what my other options should be. I am stuck between chemistry or further maths. I am also predicted an 8 in GCSE for chemistry.

    If anyone does these subjects or has done, could you please help me. Thankyou.

    While maths and physics should be adequate to get you into most universities, by taking further maths and attaining the required grades for all three subjects, you may make your application stronger.

    Further maths may be useful for applying to Oxbridge, however the third subject should be something that you enjoy and are motivated to do well in!

    Remember, most sixth-forms/colleges allow you to change your A-Level options up to two-weeks into the term, so focus on picking a subject that you enjoy, otherwise it will be HELL for the next two years
