    This is my first thread.
    Ok so I am currently studying A level Maths, Computing and Physics. The sixth form I go to has a good reputation but I feel I cannot learn properly. Every lesson I cannot focus and when I am at home, I dread the fact that i have to go back the next day. I found a BTEC level 3 computer science course i could do and I could do AS maths/ Further maths along side it. The college claims in 2016 there was a 100% DDD or higher and 100% of students went to russell group universities. I want to study computer science at Uni and I feel this is a very good choice for me. The college offering this is Newvic and I've heard they are not that good of a college. Anyway I was wondering if anyone had some advice, especially if you have done Btec computing/ went to newvic or even if you've studied computer science.

    I am currently doing OCR computing.
