Since GCSEs are level 2, you should be doing a level 3 course.
Though it can depend on what grades you get, what are your predicted GCSE grades?

Level 1 is a qualification of around GCSE (D-G) or whatever the numbers are you newbies use nowadays.
Level 2 is GCSE level (A*-C)
Level 3 is A-Level equivalent understanding. Level 3 BTECs are also used to get into university.
Level 4-6, each year of university is another level higher e.g. 1st year = Level 4, 2nd Year = Level 5
Level 7 is a Masters degree level qualification
Level 8 is Doctorate/PhD level.

Bit of an overload of information but thought you'd like to see the progression of qualifications. Gives you a bigger picture

Since art and product design are creative subjects, you should be able to do it college.
Also, your predicted grades are really good so aim to get on a level 3 course if you can

They go over the basic stuff in level 3 anyway.
You're predicted grades are good so i think you'll be able to manage level 3 fine
