      Hi zak 🙂

      My GCSES did not actually have any effect on me becoming an engineer because we all had to do maths and science.

      I chose random options like Media, Geography and Child development. I am not sure what options you have now but pick something you enjoy 🙂

      Your A levels will matter though so choose maths and science subjects if you would like to do engineering 🙂

      Hi Zak,

      I took history, drama and french so not really relevant to engineering! Like Zoe says it is really A Level options which will affect whether you can study engineering at university or not. You really must enjoy maths and science though to consider becoming an engineer…

      trust me you will spend A LOT of time at uni figuring out equations!

      Hope this answers your question 🙂
