    1. Each Uni has their own requirements, some are more particular that others.
    2. You will have to research the unis you are interested in.
    3. Its normally a mix of science and Arts subjects, but their entrance requirement will state which ones they prefer.

    Maths or Physics is popular and sometimes required.

    Art or design can also be a requirement.

    Computer studies can also be preferred.

    Ive looked at several but as there are so many unis then its more efficient for you just to check the unis you are interested in and make sure you take the subjects that meet their requirements.

    4. Scholarships are again viewed from the scholarship page for the uni. there may be architecture specific ones or ones targeted at international students. Its up to you to look on the uni sites you are interested in to check whats available.

    A very small minority of courses like maths/physics (Bath and Strathclyde are the main ones). The vast majority require either a creative subject or a portfolio of creative work (or both).

    Take subjects you enjoy and find interesting that you think you will do well in. And draw from life (not photographs) as much as possible and maybe make some 3d models for your portfolio.

    PQ is spot on, do what you enjoy and will therefore do well in. Try to do a good mix though if possible (only if you actually enjoy them though) and where possible avoid things like Film Studies and General Studies to keep as many doors open as possible, but again don't worry too much.
