I'm in a levels now and am taking 4 subjects, just like everybody else in my college. I've always wanted to do something with design and art, and in the mean time when i was deciding whether to go on foundations or a levels, i decided a levels since it opens up to a wider pathway. Next thing is tht i heard most uni only needed 3 subjects, so i decided to drop to 3, to put more focus on art.

But i heard that you will need 4 subjects to apply for scholarships, which means i must take heavy subjects since my school is not providing subjects like thinking skills. Which ALSO means tht i will be putting much effort into what i am not interested in. I am so so so frustrated right now, not sure if taking a levels is really the right option for me. I am so scared tht i will go back to the times when i messed up igcse.

P. S. This is more of a rant, sorry for the long post.

Do some research and check if the scholarships really do require 4.
From what ive seen then art or at least courses at Uni of Art London have lower requirements as low as 2 A levels, but like a very good portfolio.

Maybe you want a different sort of design college?

Start checking entrance requirements and courses plus whether you might be better with an art foundation course.
