Value of Creative Writing A Level?Watch
Creative Writing: A*
English Lit: A
I'm having History and English remarked as they were both close to A grades, but I'm really disappointed with my grades and predicted grades. Will being predicted an A* in Creative Writing really mean anything to universities at all? Will it help that I studied this basically independently as an 'extra' simply because I enjoy it? Half of me thinks that an A* in any subject is great, but the other half of me thinks that unis will disregard it as it's not very academic and will only really consider the AAB predictions of my other subjects.
Well do you plan on doing anything in the future that involves creative writing? I'm off to uni in September to study Journalism & Creative Writing, I never got to study CW at A Level because they introduced it to my sixth form this year. I most definitely would have taken it if I could. Just so I could have got a head start on creative writing for uni. So that's why I think it's valuable if you're in my shoes, someone who intends on taking it at university and hopefully as a career in the future.
