What degree to doWatch
I’m really interested in geography, politics, psychology and I may want to go into film directing. I also really like drama. I’m currently predicted all 9s and I think PPE sounds interesting and it’s good for going into the media. I’m not sure about doing maths a level but I’m aware it’s very useful. What degree courses work for my subjects and would help me get into film directing? And what unis have good drama and facilities for film making? I’m currently thinking maths, geography, RS and psychology a level but I’m not sure about maths.
I'd also suggest picking at least one creative A-Level like English, Media or Art (i did all three). When I first applied to uni I applied to study Media Production (I now study fine art though) and part of the application for that course was making an applicant video about myself and taking at least one creative A-level will definitely give you the creative thinking skills you need if you want to go into film.
If you're only in year 11 now though - you have quite a lot of time to figure out what you want to do! I would say taking media a-level is a really good idea if you think you want to study and work in film, as it still has a lot of relevance to politics and the world as a whole as well as actual creative media content
Thank you for your advice! I’m thinking of something more like politics because I thought I could start making films based around my unrelated degree and then if I decide to do something else I can. But I’m not sure of the best way to do it 😀
