    I've chosen to study a level photography, graphic communications and film studies. I'm unsure about the a levels I have chosen as I'm worried about the amount of drawing ability needed for graphic communications and English skill level needed for film studies. I achieved a C in English language and are predicted to get a C in English literature this summer, I have also been predicted a B in art & design - digital photography. I wouldn't class myself as a talented drawer but I'm usually pretty okay at drawing and just wondering if that would be enough for graphic communications, I also struggle slightly in English as I run out of ideas of what to write quick and find phrasing things hard so I'm also worried that film studies will consist of quite a lot of English skills. any advice would be more than appreciated, thank you!

    I cant help much with the english part but graphic communication is more than just drawing, also even if you are that good you refine and develop on art courses obviously. I came out of art and design with a pass and now im working at distinctive level at college. Sure you will need to draw stuff but the teachers will be there to help and friends. Ive not taken film studies so i cant help, possibly ask at any opendays for your sixith form/college.

    Hi, Im currently doing Graphic Communications (actually Graphic Design, they just had to change the name) and honestly, dont worry about it! The great thing about GC is that its about refining your style, you could be a typography artist, minimalist or even just purposely have a 'messy' look. its all about what you like! I recieved a B in art gcse (still lowkey salty lol) but that honestly did not hinder me at all, its all about develpment and experimentation w GD (if you choose to do it, make sure you arent too hard on yourself and that you support your style no matter what, confidence is key w art subjects)
