I'm hoping to apply to the engineering course at cambridge but I just dropped further maths and am only taking an AS (I just started Y13). I am taking maths, chemistry and physics as my other 3 but I am worried that this won't be enough and am considering changing it to Natural sciences. However I much prefer engineering as a subject and have a genuine interest in it.

If you have a genuine interest in the course, you can still get onto it. The website states that, if you have not done the full A level, having done the AS level content should be sufficient.

You may be asked to sit some of the STEP Papers.

Thanks for the reply. I also saw that but in practise I hear that they favour further maths quite a lot in full. Also the engineering course seems so competitive with 7 applicants per place that natural sciences seems so much more appealing (assuming I can write a good PS for it).

Don't apply for a course that you aren't going to absolutely love studying, especially at Cambridge. The environment is so pressurised, you'll crash and burn.
