Is taking Art A level detrimental for my application to read Philosophy at Cambridge?Watch
However, I have read on some college websites (e.g. St. Catharine's) that subjects that are not very 'academic', including Art, are not preferred. Is this something to worry about? Does it depend on colleges? If so, are there any colleges that are okay with a Philosophy applicant taking Art A level? Will the university think that I don't have enough commitment to the subject?
(I did sort of justify my subject choice in my personal statement by writing about how I explored philosophy of time and similar themes through visual art; philosophy of time is what takes up about 20% of my current draft of personal statement as well.)
