    Photography GCSE was offered at my school however I didn't take it. However, I'm now considering it for A-level. I always loved photography and taking pictures and am quite good at it but that's as much as I do, I've never used photoshop or the darkroom e.g. Does it matter that I didn't take it for GCSE? I feel like others will be a lot more experienced and I won't really know my way around.

    Don’t worry, a lot of schools don’t offer photography at GCSE! My school didn’t even offer the subjects like business and media!

    You will be absolutely fine, they’ll teach you how to use photoshop etc. depending on what you want to do in the future, maybe consider media?

    I wouldn’t worry about it, if it’s what you love doing then don’t hesitate to take it!
