    I'm currently in year 12 and I started the year with 4 AS subjects, Maths, Physics, Product Design and Art. But I couldn't handle the workload over the Christmas, especially with my January Maths examination. As a result, I dropped Art. I'm planning on picking up Art again as an AS next year, but I was wondering how I could improve my chances of getting into Bartlett, if there is any chance of me getting in now.:confused:

    I think they're pretty strict on having Art at A-level, I was thinking of applying to UCL next year as well but I do Graphic Communication and I don't think they accept that.

    No disrespect intended but if you struggled with the workload of AS levels I would seriously reconsider your intention of studying architecture, especially at the Bartlett

    I understand what you mean, but I have to admit that was my own fault. I started out A levels thinking that I could cruise AS just like I did at GCSE. I definitely learnt my lesson when the January exams rolled around. I really do love architecture, it's something that i've always wanted to do since I was little and it is something that I really want to do. I'm willing to work harder than ever.

    I've just come back from a UCAS convetion, and I found out that I wouldn't be able to apply to the Bartlett if I don't have an A2 art qualification. That sucks.

    I'm feeling that too, the only thing that you could do is just trying your hardest. Because at the end of the day, the worst thing you could do is walk out of your exam thinking you could have tried harder. As long as you know that you tried your best and gave it 100% then there is no reason why you can't get AAA*. That's my opinion.

    I have an offer from UCL at the Bartlett and I have firmed them so hopefully ill be there in September! You may not get in to architecture at UCL because they require art a level but there are courses in the Bartlett you could consider which are very close to architecture but don't require art ( and with a lighter workload!)

    Ignore this. A-Levels and a degree are completely different.

    can someone answer the thread on my post

    also i do Graphic Communication

    They base their final decisions more on your portfolio and your academics. I was having this conversation with one of my former tuition teachers (he helped ppl get into top schools such as St.Olaves Grammar school)
