if someone was to want to become a graphic designer, eg. designing film posters and stuff, what A-levels and skills would they need? would they need art, or just graphics? plus, would they have to go to an art uni and do a foundation, even if they were just interested in graphics? thanks

Fine Art and graphic design are the two main subjects you should be focussing on if you want to be a graphic designer. Though in cases an Art A-level or foundation isn't needed in terms of a qualification, you will need a strong foundation in the other sense in traditional art and design (perspective, colour theory, composition, anatomy, things like that). Some unis teach these in the graphic design course. Most assume that you already have these skills, but in the end without a grounding in art you will struggle a lot at university and post graduate level.

Remember that whatever you do, you will be competing with others who have done a foundation and a degree and will therefore have a degree of professionalism which you won't have without formal training, however talented you are.
