You Don’t Need Math to Enter in Engineering
Good news! Now you do not have to be good in maths and physics to be able to study for engineering degrees at one of the topmost universities of London, the UCL.
This has led to an increase in the number of women enrolling for engineering degrees at the University College London.
The college recently removed the traditional subjects from the entry criteria for all the civil engineering courses. Quite interestingly after this was announced, the number of female students taking admission has almost tripled! Math and Physics really seem to bother women in engineering a lot.

According to Professor Nick Tyler, it has been observed that the schools, colleges, universities, and employers all over the country are struggling with the number of women in engineering.
In such a time, this came as a welcoming relief to the women who are aspiring to be engineers, but was not getting a chance to be in a good engineering college.
Here are your chance girls!

But if you are into engineering, whatever be the field of engineering you are in, you definitely need to study math and physics.
So gear up and practice hard for a glistening career.
According to the director of UCL (center of engineering education), Paul Greening, the universities across the country should change their entry requirements for various engineering courses.
According to Prof. Greening, it is better to change the requirements than to beg the students to study physics.

The students are however required to take specific A-level subjects and must also score A grades in A-level.
It is also required for them to get top grades in science and maths in GCSEs.
By making maths and physics mandatory in university entry-level exams, the institutions are losing out on polymath students.
