If you want to be a film director and enjoy studying film, then why not choose it as an A Level? If you’re that interested in it.

But you don’t actually need a film A Level to study film at university. I embarked on a film studies degree at the University of Exeter, with A Levels in English, Welsh and French - I’d never done film studies before, not even at GCSE.

That’s assuming you want to go to University. My advice would be to explore the different options - work experience, apprenticeships, University - and do what feels right for you.

I want to be a film director, too (but am well aware of how unlikely that is!!). I didn't do GCSE Film Studies but am doing it now for A-Level and am aiming for an A* this year. I'm also taking pure Philosophy and English Lang/Lit A-Levels; at university, I'm going to be studying a film/creative writing-based course. I should have said that another area of the industry I want to get into is screenwriting. But yes, do A-Level Film Studies not only because it will make your degree (which you NEED to get into the industry!) easier but also because it's so damn awesome!!
