    I'm applying to a foundation course of which it is ok to not have academic subject experience relating to the course you have chosen (I think that is why most chose to do them... and not having the right amount of UCAS).

    I want to explain in my application why I didn't pick graphics/design related subject at GCSE and A level even though i was interested more in the subjects i picked. My reason was being told picking history geography, Spanish looks good to employers... which is ******** now because all that matters is your A levels and after that it's your degree.

    I wnat to basically explain why I didn't pick the subject relating to the subject I suddenly want to switch too. This isn't a drastic change of me picking something new... this is something i've always loved doing... i just didn't learn it at school.
