    Hi there, thanks for paying attention to my post.
    I've just a few quick questions regarding undergrad admission at the AA.
    I hold a 2:1 degree in Business and Economics from the University of Edinburgh (just graduated), and three A-levels with AAB in Physics, Business studies and Mathematics.
    How big is my chance of getting into AA? I have a genuine interest in architecture and have been drawing and sketching out ideas as a hobby.
    I'd also like to know if AA is the ideal school for a mature student like me? (i'm 22 this year)
    Thanks so much.

    Hiya!

    With those grades you meet the AA's educational admission requirements (2 A levels C or above and 5 GCSE'S C or above) however one thing I would recommend you collate is a wide and experimental portfolio of artworks, sketches models etc - often not Architecture based but showing your level of skill and interests. From what I've seen/heard with other applicants they love really artistic portfolios.

    It is a school that teaches architecture as an experimental environment, opening up possibilities for new architecture and utilises a range of different methods, approaches, writing and critical thinking. They will want to see how you fit their school in regards to this.

    I'd say the learning seems quite mature (I have only attended the DRL MArch though) and you'd definitely have no problem at 22.

    One question I have is why the AA in particular? Honestly though, nothing is holding you back from applying regardless - if I was you I'd focus on preparing and submitting an application as you never know until you have
