Theoretically, transfers are allowed. However, you would need a compelling reason and almost certainly have to restart your first year. On top of this, there's every chance your college won't allow you to change subjects.

Consider applying for ChemEng via natural sciences, or just applying to natural sciences if that's what you want to do.

If you're struggling to decide between the two, it helped me to look at the modules (not just at Cambridge if that's where you're aiming, eg Bath, WW, Imperial give more comprehensive module lists I think), and also reading around/looking at news in the respective subjects and seeing which I preferred (not sure how much this one helped because I loved both!). My teacher gave the analogy of CERN, are you more interested in the particles they're studying there, or the engineering of the accelerators, the superconducting magnets?
