    I am very passionate about art and design and i want to take my career towards that side. The choices i'm thinking about are Chemistery, Math and Art

    Questions
    1. I am worried about time cause i like to take quaily amount of time into my art works but with subjects like chem and math... will i have enough time to revise for these subjects?

    2. Will taking chemistery and math benifit me when applying for Art univercites?

    I took BTEC Art and design during college and two other creative a levels, I'll admit that it was tough to manage all of them at once for me, and they even coincided with each other on more than one project. A level art and design is considerably more demanding and if you devote a lot of time to it, you may struggle to pursue chemistry and maths as well.

    But this is dependant on your personal experience with chemistry and maths, I'm currently taking an equivalent to A level chemistry right now and I do find it challenging, but if you are capable of picking it up fast and writing essays and lab reports fairly easy then you may just be able to do it. I have no experience with A level maths so I can't say for sure, though maths is definitely beneficial whilst doing chemistry since chemistry is pretty mathematic in many modules.

    If you really want to do all of these subjects then I would maybe suggest taking an Art BTEC rather than A level to lighten the work load a little, but if you think you can handle it then by all means, go for the A level

    (This is based on my own personal experience, it may be different for you)
