      I didn’t really undertake a certain path during school to become an engineer. I chose my GSCE subjects on what I enjoyed as I had no idea what I wanted to do till after my GCSE’s. GCSE subjects which maybe useful though are Geography, DT, Graphics and of course Maths, English and Science.

      I had no set path in which I took to become a civil engineer. I chose my GCSE’s on the basis of what I enjoyed (Graphics, Geography, Business and Spanish), and at the time on what I inspired to be; which was a VET. It wasn’t until my last few exams I decided to change career paths. Which goes to show, anything can happen!

      No set path for me either, just try and get the best grades possible.
      Always good to enjoy Science though! Will help you in any Engineering job

      None really during school. As much as your teacher wont like this answer, i was not interested in school. I think GCSEs come at a really dodgy time in ones development. I for one was very immature, and didnt bother. I had the brains so why try. … Well it turns out that assignments are just if not more important then exams!
