I have started looking at universities for courses such as Product Design, Product Design Engineering and Architecture (along with other similar courses). BEng/MEng courses require me to do physics but some say i should do design and technology OR physics as well as maths.
I would want to do Product Design (BA) but I know that a Product Design (BEng or MEng) will be more desirable by employers
I know that if I do Physics it would open up a lot of doors, but then I couldn’t work on a portfolio on the side as I would have no time; therefore I couldn’t do a BA in Architecture or Product Design, I could only do engineering. But if I do Product Design Alevel then it would restrict me to just Architecture or Product design (BA) and some BEng courses as they require a portfolio which I would have time to work on.
Plus after speaking to teachers and students I have found out that Alevel Physics is very difficult and would take a lot of my time away from my other subjects (Maths and Geo) which are also hard.
I am not sure what to choose, any help would be much appreciated
What subject do you like more? ( found more interesting)
Have you thought about maybe getting work experience in product design?
Physics and maths a levels link in soo well with one another. There’s a whole section called mechanics which is taught in both of these subjects. Also I’m not sure about your college but my college recommends that if you do physics a level you also do maths A level ( if not do As level maths).
Maybe you could take all 4 a levels for a while and then drop one of them completely or just take it for As level?
Good luck with making your decision, I’m still unsure if I’ve made the right decision with taking further maths 🤷🏻*♀️
