Ill try to keep it short and simple.

I am currently in year 13 and thinking of becoming a civil engineer.

The main reason im asking is since alot of universities ask for A level mathematics.( which i dont have)

Due to covid i javent written my exams or got any predicted, ill probably lesve what i think ill get

My subjects: (A level)
Product design - B
Physics - B
Business - A

Other courses:
Finance cif (completed grade b)
Core maths (completed grade b)

Experience:
Engineering ess scheme (2019-2020 basically worked with an engineering companie (niftylift) and tried to solve an existing problem, 2 day residential trip to cambridge University)
Young enterprise(selling stuff)
Dismantelling cars with my dad for about a year now

If you could tell me any information on how to proceed, i will be very thankful

Also sorry for the poor format, its my first question

you could look at foundation year, the maths weighs more than physics to universities

As above:
I think you'll need A-level maths, so a foundation year or taking it might be the only way unless you can find a civil program that doesn't require it.

Understandable, should it be challenging as I already do physics and the maths there is also quite hard

The maths in A-level physics is easier then that of A-level maths. That said when you study A-level physics your not getting the same level of mathematics teaching, my impression of foundation years is they are designed to cater to people who haven't taken A-level maths but how challenging it is kind of depends on your aptitude.
