    Hi I'm picking my options in a few weeks and I've already decided 3/4 subjects but I'm stuck on what to pick for my final choice.

    I've decided its between Business Studies and Fine Art,
    My only concern is with Art, I don't know how good you have to be to take art at GCSE. I've been told I should take art and would probably achieve a B/A in it as I have really good tonal drawing/ photography skills (Apparently XD)

    I'm looking to achieve 8/9's in my subjects so i was wondering how hard it would be to achieve an 6-8 in Fine Art?

    Many Thanks

    If you're good at Art, you'll like it and you'll get a good grade.
    But if you're bad at art, you're going to really hate it. I know people who take art just because they thought it would be easy, but weren't that good at art and they barely manage to scrape Cs in the coursework / pieces.
