    I am wanting to do a level 3 Business course if I was to do BTEC.

    If I was to do A Level I would do ICT, Business and some other subject to make it to 3 subjects.

    I work harder in class and find it hard in exams at times.

    I know BTEC would suit me more as I work much better in class, but I want to know what do you think I should pick for the future and why?


    BTEC limits your options given you'd only be doing Business, yet if you do A-levels you're studying more subjects and so will have more choices with regard to uni courses so just think about whether you 100% want to do business full time or would prefer to have a mix of subjects

    I hardly say this but go BTEC
