    I am currently doing GCSE and soon applying for 6th Forms my first thought was i wanted to do is Architect, but the things people say it requires maths and a science but i'm going to be honest and say i'm not too keen in them. However this doesn't stop me from choosing what A-levels i want to do right?
    So the subjects i want to do in 6th Form are:

    French ( As i am a French speaker and lived there for 3 years previously but unfortunately from the age of 1-4 so i only went to Nursery, So it could still be difficult but i am predicted to get A* and i am already working at that. currently my best GCSE.)

    3-D Design which i think i will find it Interesting.

    Then it comes between Graphic Design or Fine Art as i can only do 2 Arts not the 3 that are available at the college (Which is really good).

    I am predicted to get a B in Maths as i am in Set 2 but i don't think i will get a B more likely a C but hey, ill see when i do my mocks which is soon.

    Help! Please don't tell me to research because i have, and it hasn't given me much help.
    Thanks.

    Try this website, it will suggest degrees based on your A-Level choices. See if there's any you like the look of

    Edit: I had a look at a few Universities offering Architecture. Not all of them ask for Maths/Sciences, if you feel really passionate about doing that degree still.

    If you're looking in London, London South Bank and Kingston at least. Outside London, I think it was Newcastle I found. There are likely others too though.

    Go for something mathematically based. Believe me, Maths is difficult but if you keep hitting it, it will pay dividends. French in combinatio with those is always a useful skill. Dont fanny around with fine art or graphic design. If you're gonna do graphic design, at least combine that with Maths, Physics and Computing. Honestly though, a winning combo for you would be Maths, Computing, French and Physics. The Maths would take you into architecture and any computing related fields, of which physics and computing would more than help.

    Don't pick maths unless you are confident with it a gcse and at least gating a high B. Many people take AS maths and regret it

    I've decided i'm doing:

    French
    Graphic Design
    3-D Design
    Maths

    I thought i used to like science til i got to year 11 where everything was going downhill but id rather enjoy the a-levels i'm doing rather than having to constantly revise something that i didn't understand in class, all the formulas are complicated. Have i found ways to remember them? Yes but not all. And i realized fine Art is worthless at the end of the day id rather do those 2 as they would benefit me more if done with Maths/Geography (which i'm also doing for GCSE) . And as the person who helped me in giving me information on which universities that offer architecture without Maths are also available so it think my combo is quite good to be fair but others have different opinions. Thanks,

    Thanks you for reinforcing that, i don't typically like subjects that require a lot of thinking, because i get bored easily and get distracted easily whereas creativity and inspiration comes from things around you. Not Revision.
