Architecture without a level art

Hi,

I'm studying maths, bio, econ and geography (it's too late to change courses). I know I have to make an art portfolio to apply for architecture at uni, but I barely have anything and I feel like nothing's good enough to present. I've thought about applying for universities that are specialised in architecture, but I don't think I'd get in with my work...I also considered Cambridge - is it likely that I'd get an interview when I haven't studied a level art? And what do they look for in a portfolio?? I'm really worried about this, and if things don't work out, I'm going to need to make a plan B.

Thanks

Have a look at this recent thread on developing a portfolio for architecture:

Also, give serious consideration to taking a year after A levels to complete an Art and Design Foundation Diploma (FAD) at a local college:
