It seems like physics would be a better choice if you'd wish to study engineering...and from what I've gathered (not necessarily true), math is important for engineering.

A level maths is needed for most Eng degrees. What was the minimum entry grade for your school's a level maths course?

You'll need both maths and physics for practically every engineering course. Maths skills are very important in engineering degrees. Is the reason why you didn't take A level maths because of your GCSE grade?

You need to look at university courses in engineering as I’m almost certain maths is a requirement for all, and physics is required for almost all.

At the risk of sounding harsh, A level maths is a big step up from GCSE and there is a reason why the minimum grade is a 7 - if you get a grade lower than this at GCSE you are likely to struggle a lot at A level (even people who get 9s aren't guaranteed to do well). Have you discussed this with your head of year or a similar person?
