    So it's time for me to chose my a-levels and I have decided on 3 but I really want to do a-level art. I'm doing art at GCSE and I love it, I always have. but I'm taking physics, chemistry and maths at sixth-form, which are all demanding subjects. Art is also a subject which is time consuming considering all the course work you have to do. Should I take art as my fourth subject or will I be overwhelmed?

    What do you want to do at uni? doing 3 a level is generally a lot easier than doing 4 you could do an art based EPQ or if you think you could cope with art do it

    Art won't help you get onto a uni course, you should probably only do it if you enjoy it a lot.

    I would just keep art up as a hobby- I think you'd get a bit stressed with it as a fourth subject and end up dropping it anyway honestly. Better to have it on the side as something you think more positively of.

    art can be a useful subject for stuff like architecture I would definitely look into what course you wanna do before you drop anything

    I felt that if I had art then it would may be look different and slightly more impressive to universities. Maybe show that I had something I enjoyed on the side. But now that I reconsider things I definitely feel like it's worth keeping as an EPQ than an actual course but everyone's advice is super helpful

    Maybe with old spec, but its not a good idea with new spec, given you learn like 6 AS levels worth of content in second year.

    If you're really passionate about it to a point where you know you can easily be obsessed with it, then by all means take. But if not, then I recommend to not take an especially time consuming and demanding subject, it will make you hate. I would know, I've grown to hate the intensity of chemistry.

    Also you if you love physics more than chemistry, don't take chemistry!! It will be the bane of your existence. And the chemistry part of physics is actually the physics part of chemistry, so if you're a physics enthusiasts then chemistry's not that useful.

    actually chemistry is my favourite compared to physics but compared to biology I prefer physics
