You could also consider an Art Foundation first - we suggest talking to your art teacher about options who is best placed to offer advice.(Original post by meghan.sp)
I'm coming to the end of year 12 and have started to write my personal statement. I'm studying Art, Sociology and English literature, and EPQ. I've been predicted and A in Soc and Lit and an A* in art, and I'm looking to study either a combined degree of art and film at uni, or fine art. I've looked at Reading, Oxford Brookes, Lancaster (all of these offer the combination) as well as Nottingham Trent. I am going to look at Canterbury Christchurch (for double honours), Edinburgh for Fine art, and.. as I decided yesterday... Oxford University, for fine art.
I know I can do well at A Level art, and I got 100% at GCSE but I'm really struggling to maintain a B at the moment and I worry my predicted grades won't get me place at Oxford. But, I was thinking about it and I thought I might as well try, If you don't try you never know, right? I'm relatively academic but I don't know if I'm achieving at the level I should be for an Oxford candidate. Is this a good idea, or would putting Oxford down as one of my top choices be sort of wasting that spot on my list?
What should I do?
