should you have an a-level in film studies to study it in uni. A lot of unis don't include it in entry requirements but can any film students please give me an idea of how important the a-level actually is

For a film *studies* course then you don't need an A level - although an A level in media or english literature (or history or a modern language) can help. Film studies courses are an academic study of film. So like a English Lit degree but studying films and not novels/poems.

For a film *production* course you would be learning how to MAKE films and so some practical filmmaking experience would be a bonus (as any decent film production degree would want to see your showreel of work - if you're taking A levels that include the opportunity to make films then that obviously increases the pool of footage available to you).

For either if film or media isn't available to you as an A level but is something that you'd be interested in taking at university then it's a good idea to take an EPQ alongside your A levels. You can produce an artifact (like a film or documentary) for an EPQ or you can do research around a specific question/theme in films. Either way it would give you a chance to demonstrate your ability and improve your understanding of what the degree would involve.
