    I intend on becoming an Architect and taking architecture as a degree.

    However I don't want to take A-Levels such as Maths to name one.

    I might take Physics but would you recommend taking physics if you're weak in maths.
    I enjoy Physics if that counts as something.

    Thoughts?

    Just do some research of architecture courses and compare what they actually want. Some have a large variety of acceptable A levels. Find one that fits .

    Physics has a lot of maths but a lot of it is theory's such as the motor effect and string theory if you are willing to put in the hard work go for it

    As _gcx usually says, A-Level Physics now assumes that you haven’t done A-Level Maths.

    If you did Maths you’d have more practice so just make sure you practice in your spare time

    Honestly? Take Maths. Most rewarding A-level and an A is very achievable even for a weak student. A* is a bit harder but still doable for just about anybody.

    Hey Oneiropólos,


    The requirements for each architecture course differ from university to university. I suggest looking at the requirements for the universities you are looking to apply to for your architecture course. The requirements for Ravensbourne are 2 A levels grade C and above in any subject so you do not have to take maths or physics at A level if you don't want to. I suggest picking A-Levels that will help you build on your skills and courses that you enjoy doing. Taking a creative subject would help with build your portfolio.

    Your portfolio should show your passion as well as your experimental and technical skills. You should show your whole design process from research to concept development to the final piece. At Ravensbournewe offer portfolio workshopsyou can attend for free. You will get feedback and interview tips. You should also check out our BA Architecture course. Our students go on various trips, are taught by industry professionals and work with industry on live briefs as well as collaborative work.

    We are located in Greenwich Peninsula, London and are a design and media based institution. Our open space plan offers students the chance to work in a collaborative environment. You will be able to work with other students on different courses to help you develop your skills and projects. If you are in the area I would suggest coming to an open day to meet the tutors and get a better understanding of the course.

    I hope you have a great two years at Sixth Form.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask,

    Danny & Row
