Practice your maths, physics and chemistry. Read about what topics the degree includes, like fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, mass and heat transfer, etc.

At what stage are you? Maths, Physics and Chemistry are the obvious A levels to take. You can find out more on the Institution of Chemical Engineers' website https://www.icheme.org/education/whynotchemeng/

Thanks for that. I have an offer to study chemical engineering for 2020. I didn't study physics at A level.

Would it be wise to study Physics A Level during this long period.

I didn't do chemical engineering (I did mechanical), but I think that looking into specific course content will be more helpful as it'll be more relevant. I'm not entirely sure what the A-level physics syllabus consists of, but I did highers and lots of the syllabus wasn't specifically relevant for engineering. You can probably find much of the chemical engineering content online - enough to keep you busy for a while.

Thanks for the youtube channel you gave. Very helpful.
Could you give me some advice on coding and what website I should use to learn coding, e.g. python, java.
