    I stuck between two uni courses that I want to study: Music Industry Management and Magazine Journalism.

    Now I could just stick with Music Industry and start uni this year....

    ....OOOORRRRRR Stick with my TRUE uni choice which I wanted to do before which is the magazine journalism and take a year out to get more experience with magazines and stuff and take that NJCT(I fink thats the order of the letters) Course so I can put that on my application when I re-apply.

    This where A-levels comes into it, I wanna also try and do somemore a-levels to boost my app as well-maybe an intensive course or 2, i was thinking of doing sociology, psychology and maybe history.

    But I really LOOVVVVEE art and want to do an AS in it (to rub in my teachers face lol) cos I felt really disappointed in the grade I got cos I didnt deserve it, I know I didnt.

    However, from researching the college where I want to do the intensive a-levels doesnt offer any art courses except at diploma level. Can u do intensive levels in one college and an AS level in another? Or should I take up the short course photography classes that the college offers? (that's relevant 2 magazine journalism, right?)

    Thanks

    Personally I'd do English or History as an intensive A level and use the rest of your free time for extra stuff to add to your application.

    Art is mainly geared towards diplomas than a levels though you can take art at a level. 'Cause most universities who do art look favourably on the National Dip and Foundation Diploma and request sometimes for an applicant to do the foundation diploma first before a degree.
    Graphic design is always relevant to magazine work too.
