    I am stuck between these two options, I want to take art, but I got a low grade so I don't know if I'll be able to take it, but i could also take Graphic Products, but it seems boring, the reason I am struggling to choose between these two subjects is because, these are backups because I either want to become a psychologist or a Graphic designer. I know graphic products would be a bit more useful but I think art can replace it, but I only got a level 4 so I don't know if I'll be allowed to take it. Help!

    In that case it probably doesn't matter too much. I'd advise you go for Art but if you're significantly better at Graphics then do that.

    if you enjoy art, pick art
    but it is a load of work
    im in year 11 and it is the most time consuming subject im doing
    but if you like it, theres not a problem with doing it
    graphics isnt as time consuming so its up to you really but i think you kind of answered your own question saying you enjoy art more ?

    Art is ALOT of work, if your interested in graphic designing take graphics, it really gave me perspective to what it's like as I was thinking of becoming a graphic designer to, and it would help if you persue it further if you want to, I also find it to be less work then art and more fun which is nice.

    Do not be deterred by Level's as they prove nothing. I heard that both subjects are heavily contented with coursework especially Art. If you want to be a Graphics Designer then pick Graphics; it seems a lot easier than Art.

    I chose Art and I have my up's and down's, I really enjoy the subject however you need to very patient and prepare for an unexpected workload, I never know whats round the corner aha. Saying that, I also wish I did graphics as my artistic style has been described as 'graphical'. I didn't do graphics simply because the teachers are my school who taught graphics were well, non existent? I don't think we have one haha

    Im in year 10 and I took art. It is very time consuming but worth it the end. You dont need to be the best at art, you will get a good grade if you do the work and extra and support them with good comments. In my school some of my friends took both and they have said that the work load is about the same, so it is down to what you enjoy the most. In year 10 we have looked at portraiture and landscapes; next year you get to pick your own type of projects with guidance, so you may have chance to do something more on the graphics side as long as you find some artists to compare your work with

    If i was in your situation, I would take Art, being artistic is the most important thing for being a great designer.

    after your A-levels or BTEC in Art you can go onto a foundation in art and design, then you can choose to do a pathway in Graphic Design, you will learn so much more in those few months than you will in your GCSE course.
