    Hi, I'm a currently in year 11 and next year I'll be going to sixth form at my school right now.
    For my A-levels I opted to take:
    Art and Design
    English Literature
    AS Textiles (one year only)
    Sociology (reserve subject)

    I would really like to complete an art foundation course once I've finished with A-levels then go to Uni to maybe study Illustration (I want a creative job in the future)
    However, I haven't take textiles as a gcse so I'm wondering if I would struggle if I took it as an a-level since my friends take it as a gcse and apparently there is a lot of coursework and the exam is quite difficult.

    I don't whether I should choose to do AS textiles of AS creative writing since my school recommends taking a one year course.

    P.S also if anyone does A-level Sociology, would you recommend it? I might swap Eng lit with it if I don't get the required grades.
