    Hi Tamsin Rose,

    College subject topics vary so I cannot advise you on any choices otherwise, however sounds like you have a great range of subjects covering different areas of art, and very focused in what you want to study!

    Studying a creative course, they will definitely take into account your portfolio as they want to see you are passionate which is reflected in your work. I am a Ravensbourne student and i know friends in fashion who have only one A-level relevant, but strong portfolios, as long as you meet their entry requirements and enthusiastic you will be fine

    Perhaps it might be beneficial if you look towards doing an art foundation course before you apply for your degree. We also offer a foundation course in fashion and textiles here if you'd like to take a look.

    Many unis and local colleges offer a foundation course which is a 1-year course to experiment and product work so when you go through your UCAS process and start receiving interviews you will have had extra time to work on your portfolio.

    Hope this has been insightful.

    That's way too narrow and will virtually ensure that you can't change your mind at any future point. I'm sure you will say you won't change your mind, but people do change considerably from what they were like at 15/16 and you don't want to spoil your future. Choose two of those (I'd say art and photography) and have the other two as something much less focused on art to keep your options open. You should do an art foundation course after A levels, so you'll have quite enough art for Brighton's needs.
