    i'm considering doing photography as one of my a level subjects - i'm quite an artistic and creative person and would love to be a music photographer and/or journalist in the future!

    if you do photography or know any one that does - is it fun and interesting? how much work and effort do you have to put in? what are the projects like? what do you do?

    thank you so much! X

    I don't do photography a level but the people in my year said it was terrible. Most people there got a bad grade because there's no mark scheme; the examiner marks it based of their own opinion. So if they don't like it (even if the photo is amazing), they'll fail you/give you a bad grade.

    You're welcome
    For my school the exam board is AQA. I'm not sure what A level Photography is like for other exam boards :ninja:
