A level help please!!!Watch this thread
I feel like you should stick with graphics it seems weird to do ICT when you’re doing computer science
I made a post about it please check it out when you are free
In my experience, as someone who studies a Game Art BA, I needed an A-level or equivalent in a relevant subject. This could be Art, Fine Art, Architecture, IT/ICT, Media, etc. As long as I had studied one of those, it was my grade that really mattered.
In your case, if you really insisted on completing Graphic Design, then taking up Computer Science related projects at home would give you an advantage. You could begin to learn a programming language on CodeAcademy.com or something similar. If you wanted to go the extra mile, you could get in contact with a student already studying Computer Science or even a lecturer at one of the universities you're interested in, and ask them for advice directly.
I’m currently doing a level maths, computer science, Graphic design, and btec level 3 ict subsidiary diploma and I’m unsure what to drop for my 2nd year from graphic design and ict and like ict a lot more and feel I can get a D* whereas in graphic design I feel I will probably get a C (if that) so I was wondering if dropping graphic design would put me at a disadvantage to applying to uni’s like Aston for computer science so I’m unsure what to drop from graphic design and btec level 3 subsidiary diploma ICT
