    Hi, I'm thinking about what to do for my A levels. I thought of graphic design, art and photography. I'm currently doing GCSE graphic design and I regret not doing art. But I have a chance to do art for my A levels and I also want to do photography.
    I've heard that art and photography is time consuming, so if I do this, is it a lot of work? And by doing art and photography, does it double the time to do the work?
    Has anyone done this?
    Thanks!

    If you plan on going to a top university i suggest you reconsider some of these subjects. They are all 'soft' subjects.

    All subjects at A level will be time consuming. However, I will also recommend you to change one of your subjects to a stronger subject if you plan on going to a top university. Good luck though.

    it depends on what you want to do at university. Its okay to say they are "soft" subjects, however an A Level in Science or Maths isn't going to do anything for you when applying for a foundation art etc. Consider what it is you want to do with these A Levels. You are choosing very hands on subjects which means they're never over. Its not like answering a question on an exam or writing a paper theres always room for improvement and to add more work to your portfolio. Be prepared to hit the ground running and not to stop until your a levels are over. I done Moving Image Art, Art and Design and Performing Arts Set Design at A Level and was offered 2 unconditional places and a place with scholarship in 3/4 of my uni applications.
