I am in year 8, and have recently been looking around for career ideas. i have already taken my choices and the choice that matters most to this question is DT. I am really wanting a career in Video Games. My first choice was a game designer, while that is still my main choice, I have been thinking towards concept art. I have not taken art . ( My big problem) so is it possible if I just practice and build up a personal portfolio of my art, i could get a A-level/some kind of qualification in illustration?

I think that it would be hard to do A-Level art if you haven't chosen it for GCSE, maybe talk to your teachers and see if you can change your subject choice? As u are only in year 8 you could easily change your subject choices, or if not choose it in year 9 for year 10? If you are able to repick your options I would maybe consider choosing computing or iMedia maybe since its about programming. Hope this helps xx

thanks! this was really helpful. obviously with the current situation it makes everything 10 times harder, but this was really helpful. i have picked computing and my school doesnt do imedia but you have helped me think more clearly about this. Thanks again!
