should i drop art?Watch
On the other hand, my friend absolutely loved it and is now doing it for AS. I don't think you should drop it if you really like it or you need it for example. If you plan your time well you'll be fine
I also did Art GCSE, and it took up SO much of my time, many people will say the same as me but seriously it was awful!! It took up revision time for other subjects and because of that I didn't do as well in my other subjects.
If you don’t have a passion for it, I wouldn’t really recommend continuing with it as it takes up a huge amount of time; I already drew in my free time so it wasn’t such a bit stretch for me! In this way I agree that art takes up a lot of time, but for me, who has been trying to create a brand out my art for around four years now, it wasn’t really anything new! (I got 11A*s and 1A on results day so it is possible to still do well in other subjects)
My top tips for coping with GCSE art are:
Remember it’s better to fully finish part of a piece to a high standard, rather than all your piece to a low standard
Trust your art teacher because they are the one who will mark it in the end–try and be open minded about taking their advice
And try and fit art homework in with your normal schedule; I always say to do your art homework while you watch tv! Time management really is key: since I was constantly up to date with my work, I actually had 3 free periods before study leave in art to just revise my other subjects, while everyone else had to rush to finish projects!
Good luck with whatever you choose!!
