    Hi,

    Chemistry is a strong subject but it isn't required for architecture. If you look at the uni prospectuses/websites, you can look at the subject requirements. The people in my year that study architecture now all did art and maths, physics to at least AS level and another unrelated subject e.g. history.

    You don’t even need maths and physics for the vast majority of architecture courses. What you do usually need is a creative/design subject or a portfolio (or both for some courses). If you’re not taking a creative/design A level then pick three subjects you think you will get good grades in without using all of your free time. That’ll give you time and energy to build a portfolio in your free time.

    Posted this on another thread but I think this infographic I found via Google might be useful for you TS.

    Basically, I think a lot of people has misconception about Engineering and Architecture.

    Not in the slightest. I second cyw1994's infographic and recommend that you read more into the course content of Architecture and the job roles of architects, and compare this to those of structural engineers, quantity surveyors etc. which are on the more scientific/mathmatical side of working in the built environment field.
