Chances of getting into prestigous fine art course without foundation ? watch

    • Thread Starter


    I'm currently doing my as and doing my a2 next, doing 5 subjects, (predicted A in all of them) including art and photography, which I'm really enjoying and I always do a lot more than expected and I am the best one in the groups.

    So obviously we need to start applying to unis this year and I know I definitely want to study fine art at a prestigious uni in London (Slade etc.)
    and become an artist, however I don't want to do a foundation.
    I already told my teacher and she told me I should start preparing extra work, which I am doing, in fact I spend like literally almost of my spare time doing art , as it is something I really really enjoy

    So really my question is just , do you think that I have good chances of getting an offer , if I just keep doing my extra projects outside of school , and show my commitment etc. in my personal statement ?
    And also I know that it is not a fixed requirement, and they accept A-level students in "exceptional cases", what do you think would they consider to be such a case ? Just soooooo anxious about it, and it is really important to me.

    Would be really looking forward to a reply, thanks
