I support Mark Hansford’s Comment that A-level physics should not be a prerequisite for a civil engineering degree. Let’s face it – the bits of it we do use, F=ma and Hooke’s Law for instance, are all pretty linear and easy to remember. I have yet to use any A-level optics professionally and I could have picked up the electrical skills I’ve needed via the University of Life.
