I am taking Bio, Chem, and Math A levels right now and I actually don't know what I want to do for uni nor have I got anything I am truly passionate about. But I suddenly thought engineering or astrophysics would be a fun career to have but since I don't have physics, I would either have to repeat year 12 or take a foundation year in uni. Should I just give up cause I'm not really sure if I would truly enjoy it and find a career I can do with the subjects I have now? I'm going to some engineering and aeronautic engineering courses in the future but I want some other perspectives on this matter. Thank you

Some (many?) unis only require maths for engineering, generally if you can do maths you can do the physics required at undergrad level.

Id say carry on unless you really want to do astrophysics.

If you care about money, finance is always the easy option with those A-levels.
