I want to be an interior designer. Do i have to take art and design or graphics (as subjects) in IGCSE or A levels? or is it fine if i took courses outside school in these subjects? like will universities accept that?

First of all I would suggest looking up specific universities you are interested in because it will give you an idea of what entry requirements for your desired course are. Usually entry requirements, which include not only grades you need to obtain, but also subjects preferred by a university, do not change that much if you compare one year to another. Depending on what the most common subjects required are and what grades you need to get, you can then decide which subjects to take on A-level. Now, from personal experience I would definitely recommend taking art/design on A-level because it gives you competitive advantage over other applicants and also some/the majority of art/design courses require you to submit a portfolio with your work when you apply to universities. UK universities usually ask for 3 A-levels when you apply, but I would suggest taking 4 in Year 12 and then if you need, drop 1 in Year 13 because it gives you more flexibility and choice after GCSEs especially if you are not sure which subjects to take at the moment.
Hope you have am amazing day!
