First of all thanks to everyone that will reply to my question. I know that i should pick maths and physics to be able to pick engineering or design in university but do you have any recommendations as a third or fourth subject to pick to be able achieve the subject i want in university.

Hey Emir muftuoglu ! And thanks McGinger :^_^:

Yep, for us you're right in prioritising Maths and Physics. It depends what type of Engineering you're interested in what you might want to do with your third pick. For example, if you're interested in Biomedical Engineering Biology could be useful, or Chemical Engineering Chemistry would be useful. If it's something like Mechanical Engineering, you're ticking the main boxes we look for with Maths and Physics, so your third subject could be a number of different things. Previous applicants have had subjects like languages, other sciences or design classes for example.

If you decide to pursue a Design based Engineering discipline, you may want to think about art-based classes which will support your application. We offer degrees in our Design Manufacturing and Engineering Management department, where it could be good for them to see Art, Product/Graphic design for example. These aren't necessary requirements, but could support your application and are good at giving you a bit of insight in to what your degree entails.

Generally our conditional offers are made within the range of AAB - BBB.

Hope this helps!
