The three choice gcses I chose are media studies, business/economics and photography. I didn't choose art because I heard that it wouldn't be that good and I also don't enjoy using paint (I like to use normal pencils and colored ones). I'm am actually a good traditional artist.

Can I become an architect without an art gcse?

If not, can I do art a levels if I put together a portfolio?

I'm not in the field of arts or architecture however what I can say is make sure you get good grades in all your subjects and you can apply for any course you want. Having an Art GCSE may be helpful but its not a necessity. Also, if you are looking to go to uni, ensure that you have a strong personal statement showing you're interest in the course and you'll be fine

Art isn't required but it would be useful to boost your application, in addition most universities will require a portfolio to apply for the course and also a pass in GCSE Maths (Minimum grade 5) However you cannot do A-Level Art without GCSE Art at most schools
