Right, I'm a BTECH'ian myself and I just think its wrong that A-level students look down on me and other people for doing BTECH's I know there are ALOT of melters that go do BTECHS and some how manage good grades...BUT! there are that small minority of people like myself that, well chose to go to do their BTECH's. I was never the brightest light bulb in the electricity shop but I got enough to go to my A-levels so don't ya'll be hatin' on me for being 'stupid' which is a name I get called a lot as soon as an A-level student knows I'm in college, believe it or not all my closest friends who then went on to do their A-levels all stopped talking to me.
sad I know right >.<
Well I came here just to say that I think it DEPENDS
for instance, if a A-level student wants to go and do ...Engineering and they have all them science and maths subjects you need then yea sure it looks better i think but if you are like me ^^
Then it will be best if you go to do BTECHS for the simple reason of...an art student in College covers a HELL of a lot more then an A-level student doing art, P.E and ICT. I know this because I was having a wee chat to a girl I know taking an art subject and asked how her prints and ceramics was going...she didn't know what a mono print, relief print OR an etching was or how to do ANY of them there are more she didn't know but ill talk about that in a wee bit.
I think that if you want to go and do a subject that you need to be taught techniques and ways to improve as in A-level I find that the teachers are just like 'yes, paint that in more acrylic paint' and the facts that College does in fact have better equipment and resources.
Okay to the other subjects I cover that A levels Will never cover until Uni..
I have classes in; Textiles, Graphic design and Illustration, (I want do that in uni <3 ) ceramics, fine art and exhibition preparation for the end of the year and photography. I study these techniques in depth and you cant do well unless your good at art and good at all aspects of it like right now I suck at textiles and its Soooo hard, doesn't help my teacher is a bitch.
Anywho rant over sorry, I'm just sick to my bones that people call me stupid and pathetic because I'm in college doing something I love and would never regret. I guess it just depends on
1, What classes you have chosen
2, what uni course you want to go and do
3, what uni you want to go to
and finally how in depth your course is before you go to uni
I'm happy that I have a good grounding about that I want to do.
Good luck to all of you from each and every course Hope to see you ALL do well in life!
This is only my opinion and the fact that I used art and stuff is because I know what I'm talking about.
