Why Architecture? Architecture can equally fulfil my passion for art and science. It is a wide subject that influences us in all ways, having to deal with buildings on the aesthetic and technical level, makes buildings more meaningful to look at rather than focus on its functions. And what makes me passionate about is architects add liveness to a vague engineering structure through creativity.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself? I like to observe things around me and look into things I interested in through research. I enjoy drawing and logical thinking as well.

I hope to be able to find a specialism in sustainable approaches to architecture, particularly in terms of timber construction.
I enjoy walks in the woods, and like the idea of construction in the forests.
I like to draw and make things, and I know that model making is a big part of the course.
Maybe see you next year, I am based in the Newcastle so probably wont be too interested in London courses, although I have put down Bartlett, as I think most people have.

University Choices:

UCL (Architecture and Engineering, and the Architecture one), Sheffield (Architecture and Engineering), Bath (Archi), UAL (Archi)

A Levels predicted: A*AA, but I do Chemistry Maths French :0

Do you think I'll be disadvantaged by not having Art A Level?

I'm undecided for my last choice between Manchester, UAL, Nottingham and Loughborough tho. Could anyone give me some tips on which is best?

1. Art, Maths and physics (+epq in yr12)
2. Bath, UCL, Cambridge, Sheffield and Cardiff
3. I've got an idea of the pieces I'm including but I plan on refining that in the half term holidays along with interview prep. I sent my ucas off on the 14th of Oct and haven't heard back from Bartlett regarding this year's tasks. Has anyone received any offers/ got correspondence avec Bartlett?

Yep, I’ve completed and sent off the task!! It was very vague as always, slightly different format to previous years I believe!

I applied on Oct 14 and got the task on Oct 24. It's possible that they just have loads of applications to look through!
