I'm in year 13, took math-science a levels, but now I want to do architecture...Watch this thread
I've been changing my career path too often recently. I really hate how I can't decide what to do. I took math, biology and chemistry thinking I'll be doing dentistry but now I want to apply to architecture through clearing, realising I hated teeth. I really don't know what to do, my exams are coming up and I'm stressed that I'll have nowhere to go. Thanks for your help guys.
An architecture degree is around 50% design so you need to be creative. Even if there are places in clearing, you will need to have a portfolio ready to submit on the day. One option is to take an art foundation course for a year at a further education college. The link below takes you to a thread about this with good advice from an architecture lecurer. Seriously consider a year out to determine what you really want to do rather than rushing into something that you may regret. Architecture is a big commitment - it takes eight years to qualify fully and that includes five years at uni.
