    I haven't sent off my UCAS yet but I study Maths, Art, and Physics, plus I'm doing and EPQ. I'm applying to Bath, Nottingham, Liverpool, Kent and Edinburgh.

    Curious as to how people are approaching portfolios and what to put in them.

    Hello peeps,

    This is just a thread for those wanting to apply for architecture this October!

    For me (this may change), I think my top 2 choices would be Bath or UCL. I'm planning on going to the open days in September!

    Answer this:
    AS subjects -
    AS goals -
    Latest mock grades -

    Me:
    AS subjects -
    Art, History, Product Design, Maths

    Think I'll drop History in A2

    AS goals - AABB - AAAB
    Latest mock grades - BBCD (second set of mocks start tomorrow but I have faith that I will improve!!)

    UPDATE: Latest lastest mock grades: AABB

    Matt

    I found this thread quite interesting http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...p?t=2272232The guy clearly wasn't doing as he was told and so didn't get invited in.The interesting thing to us was that the drawings that DID get an interview weren't that great!I did wonder how many people here might add any drawings from their Bartlett task to their portfolio to go to other Universities ;-)

    I think one of the problems with that submission is that the drawings should be imagined, which I tried to do in most of my drawings for the task except one, where I drew my hand from life as it was literally in front of me while I was drawing😂 Hopefully that won't disqualify me... Also I think the task is not just testing your drawing skills, as they can be taught in uni, but mainly your spatial imagination I think

    I'm sure that'll be fine, but I'm not sure that they're expecting to teach drawing to those that can't do it already - at least to some degree (but look at that "winning" entry - the perspective was terrible, so maybe you're right).
    It's interesting that "imagined" drawing is not something they seem to do much of in school.
    I wonder if there will be any sharing here of what people submitted after the close date?

    I'll probably share mine when everything is finished haha! No matter accepted or rejected it's always good reference for the future applicants 😊

    Silly question regarding the UCL Task - what do people here understand by the term "pen and ink"?
    Seems to me that it is often just "a pen that uses ink - usually black" but sometimes "a pen-drawn picture with brushed-on ink tone/colour"
