Applying without doing an Art A-Level

Hello all, I am thinking of applying for an architecture course at Uni, however I am currently not doing an art subject. I have read and heard that I need a portfolio to apply for these courses. I would like to ask what is the best way to create a portfolio? i.e. what do I need in my portfolio? Any advice would be immensely helpful.
Observational drawings/paintings, experimentation with different materials , even some quick sketches and a photo reference of what you were sketching. Creative things/projects I’ve done in my own time that just show any creative ability, it’s also important to show your process. I applied to UAL, UEL and Ravensbourne so I’m not sure about other unis as I applied for more artsy unis lmk if youre applying for any of these!

Have a look at some undergrad applicant portfolios by googling manchester architecture blogger.

There is good advice in post #3 on the following thread about developing a portfolio:

Then give serious consideration to taking a year out to complete an art and design foundation diploma at a local college:
