I am currently doing my GCSEs and I have been thinking about the future and I recently found out about mechatronics and it really interests me. However till now I was thinking about doing a degree in mechanical engineering, I found out that mechatronics engineer would not have as much skill and knowledge as a mechanical engineer. I would also like to know if a mechanical engineer would be preferred over a mechatronics engineer in the area of robotics and if it's worthwhile doing mechatronics.

A mechatronics engineering graduate will know more than a mechanical engineering graduate in the topics covered in mechatronics engineering. So for example, I'd expect a mechatronics engineering graduate to have covered more electronics and programming.

Ok, I have also read in certain articles online that a mechanical engineer would not be able to cover for a mechatronics engineer but a mechatronics engineer would have the basic mechanical knowledge to cover for mechanical engineers. Is this true?

Really depends on what area of mechanical engineering you are talking about. It's a really broad field.
