    So i am in a bit of situation

    i applying for 2011 but i have my alevel grades ABE in art chemistry and biology so i am retaking my biology exam if i get a B or a C ill have ABC/ABB I am also doing an art foundation during this year to keep my option wide but it made me realise that i love art and i would like to study fine art at university.

    do you think i should forget about studying biochemistry since i am not academic enough for a start is there any point in me retaking my biology exam if i am applying for fine art.

    I do love art but i never believed in myself despite my teachers and others telling me that i am 'the real deal' i still dont believe it some how my dream isnt to be a great artists i just wana work in the creative industry in advertising/design i just want to be creative and work for different people but i'd love to do shows in gallerys if i get the opportunaity as i love painting hence why i want to do fine art rather than graphic design but one thing i dont want to do is become a teacher


    what do you think i should do

    retake biology PLUS

    1) study fine art at a top art college only

    2) study fine art at any university

    3)forget art and study biochem

    and finally do you think ill have more job opportunaties if i study fine art alone or fine art and history of art.

    How about studying fine art at a university that lets you do a second subject in your first year? Then if you fancy changing over to the other subject at the end of the year, you can do so.

    At Lancaster everybody studied 3 subjects in first year, except joint honours students, and if you decided after the first year that you were better at one of the subjects you hadn't originally applied for, then you could swap (providing the tutors agreed, of course). It had an excellent art department when I was there, though I'm not sure if it still does.

    http://www.lancs.ac.uk/admissions/un...1/fine_art.pdf and http://www.lancs.ac.uk/admissions/un...hem-biomed.pdf suggest that the first year in both is a 'double' course with the option to choose a 'single' course from outside the faculty to make up the three first year units, so unfortunately FormerlyFrisbeeFan's suggestion doesn't work any more - though it certainly did until quite recently.

    My advice to you would be to follow your interests and abilities - you will get better results that way, which will open more employment doors by definition.
