I suggest you look at the examboard's specification and look at how its structured and what you have to do to see if its something you would like to do.

Hi strs434!

Definitely look at the exam board specification and even email art teachers from your school and see what they say. Also, it will be worth it as an a-level if you enjoy it and depending on what you want to do after sixth form? Have a think about what careers/degree/apprenticeship etc you'd like to do.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions!
