    I'm doing Chemistry with a target grade B, Art/Photography with a target grade A and IT (Information Computer Technology) with a target grade A.
    I'm also doing Welsh Bac but thinking of dropping it.
    I've looked into environmental chemistry (which I've wanted to do for a while) but I am really looking into using the IT and art/photography a levels to get me into a more creative course, I have a passion for photography and I love editing videos.
    Thanks

    Have a look at http://university.which.co.uk/a-leve...tography?o=021 (and click through to the various matches)

    If you love photography and videos then something along the lines of photography or film seems pretty ideal...although if you want something more relevant to your ICT background then animation or something like http://aub.ac.uk/courses/ba/visual-e...gn-production/ might suit you better.

    With all of these do your research - for photography courses range from the equivalent of fine art to commercial/fashion focused courses, film ranges from film studies (essentially english lit but studying film instead of novels/poems) to very practical film production, animation in some universities if very technical and IT driven while in others the focus is more on storyboarding/physical/drawing techniques.

    It's important to decide which sort of course (and with a lot of these courses the career they're likely to lead straight onto) is the sort of thing that interests you.

    If you're not quite sure but know you want to do *something* creative then a foundation diploma in art and design (you can chose diplomas with a focus on media) might be worthwhile doing before choosing a final degree choice. A lot of arts universities (UCA, AUB and UAL) offer a foundation diploma with guaranteed progression onto a degree course which gives you a good backup if this is something you'd be interested in.

    This course: https://www.falmouth.ac.uk/mnhphotography looks like a pretty good way to combine the environment and photography (assuming that your interest in environmental chemistry means that you're into nature/the environment in general).
