    I'm in year 8 and everyone in my year has started submitting their forms for what GCSEs they want to do.I don't know what to choose for my GCSE options, I want a future in architecture but I heard that you have to do design technology or an art and design based subject. I really don't want to do technology but I'm keen on doing art for GCSE and A-level. Is it ok if I don't do technology but art instead? Do I need Design Tech to be able to get into uni? btw I'll be doing maths and all sciences

    Just do art it doesn’t matter what GCSEs you do as long as you do the right a levels

    Just do what you enjoy at GCSE, Universities look at your A Level subjects

    if you like art choose art. I believe that art with maths and physics is the most preferred options for an architecture degree?
