Architecture students: What did you choose for a-levels watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm in year 11 and i'm quite confused about what i should do for my a-levels next year.
    My plans right now are (If i get the grades to do 4 a-levels then i'll be doing; Physics, Maths, Economics and Art (And arabic on the side which i do currently), and if i'm only allowed to do 3 then i'll just take up: Economics, Maths and Art (as well as arabic, as mentioned previously). However, i am really worried if this isn't a good enough choice for uni's. So i was wondering if any current architecture students could reply on what subjects they took during AS and A2, so that i get a better idea of what i should take for next year.

    I initially took Physics, Maths, Psychology and Art, dropped Maths and Physics and took Philosophy.

    Maths, Physics, Graphics, something else, tends to be the standard.

    However take what you're most excited by, as in Year 11 I wanted to do something completely different to what I'm going to Uni for. Just do subjects you enjoy, and let it take you to your interests

    Hi, I've been accepted to do architecture at Northumbria starting 2016. I did Art, Maths and Geography and I'm currently doing a foundation year at college. You have some really good options regardless of whether you change your mind or not.

    Most universities don't actually specify certain subjects for architecture but quite a few claim that an arts based Alevel will help.

    The subjects are lenient as the thing you need to concentrate on is building a portfolio to show them, and 99% of the time the university will want you to send them photos of your work, or want to see you portfolio at an interview.

    If you have any more questions just let me know!
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
