Do I really need it Art Alevel?

I am half way though my first uni course; primary education specialising in art. After this I wish to go on and study fine art.
However I didn't study art at Alevel because Science and English were more useful to me at the time.

Is it that important to have the a level or would a good portfolio and a degree generally suffice?

Its varies by college and what you want to do. No art colleges are exact alike for their submissions.

Do your research, and then all questions will be answered.

It depends on what you want to do. I know somebody who never did Art 'A' level but still got onto a fine art degree with their portfolio. I don't know what they expect to do with it though - they can't draw as good as me and I never even did GCSE art...

I will already have a degree in art centred education so with the two degrees there is tonnes of things I can do. Cool.

Get on Google. Find the website for the specific school or uni department you hope to attend. Research their admissions and/or degree requirements. If you can't find the appropriate page, then contact their admissions or a counsellor in the department.
