    Hi, so I just went to a college interview today and the teacher/interviewer orovided me with two options.. Btech Level 3 Subsidary Diploma in Art and Design or Access to Higher Education Level 3 in Art and Design....

    He basically said that the main difference is that one is more suited for younger students and is completed over 2 years and the other is more suited for mature students and is completed over 1 year....
    Are those the only differences or is one better than the other ?

    Btw I just turned 19 and decided on the BTEC course but am now wondering if that was the right decision....

    Anyway, any advice would be most welcome ! Thanks
