Hi, I'm in year 9 and I would like to do a degree in most likely architecture or civil engineering, but I am a bit stuck on what options I should take.
I think I would like to do It, French and Geography (we only get three because it is compulsory to take RE), I would have liked to do DT, but has not been run because only four people put it in their top 4 preferences.
It says that to do architecture it is best to have an art based subject, is this right, and should I change IT to art?
Thanks

Hi! I don't know a lot about architecture or engineering, but I would recommend taking what you enjoy because it makes the exams so much easier to revise for. Good luck with whatever you do.

Art is very demanding of your time and energy (I don't take it but I have friends that do), it requires a lot of coursework so only take it if you genuinley think you'll enjoy it. Don't stress too much, at gcse there's not a whole lot you rule out with your options.

After just completing my art gcse, it is demanding of your time but if you enjoy it it's not much of a problem but the only advice I can give is completed everything to a high quality and annotate all you work after completion, this may seem like a lot of effort but trusted me when you start planning you final piece at the end of year 11 and year 10 you don't have time to correct and finish everything previous because that will take the time you need for the exam.

And i believe for architecture art is more beneficial unless you prefer the 3d design and modelling on computers

p.s. In my class my friend wanted to go into architecture so focused his ideas on buildings and transport

Here's some of my work
