I was reacting to his comment btw lol. If i thought it was true i wouldve said ages ago 'oh i got into cambridge and do the hardest a levels so i can look down on you' i didnt so! . I just don't agree with the fact that BTEC's are as hard as A Levels.

A levels and BTEC might cover the same content but a levels are hrder because of the examinations. People in my school doing btec and a levels agree .

But exams aren't always an accurate representation of someone's intelligence, some people get Ill over the stress due to the build up to them - I heard that on the radio the other day

And yes coursework you can look things up but you can't just copy like most people think you can, you have to learn it and put your knowledge across it a well presented way, also BTEC deadlines are so frequent I don't know how people call them easy, not only that you have to actually learn so much and I can recall most of what I learnt on my BTRC which has helped me so much at university

That is a really really uneducated view! I am doing a BTEC not because I am less able but because I have extreme exam anxiety! When doing A levels I got A's in all my coursework but because my courses were exam based I didn't do well. Now on a BTEC course I am getting Distinction's first time for all my assignments. Is that really what a less-able student would get?
This is why I went to the effort of underlining, italicising and making bold the word "majority" Of course there are exceptions, and of course I might even be wrong, but this is irrelevant

If universities accept BTECS as well as A levels then there shouldn't be a contest.
Yeah but not as good unis

So what if they don't go to so called 'good unis' if they want to study a specific subject they could get the same degree from a good uni and from not so top uni.

For some/very few courses. That is for a reason. Also I said not this point again because we already discussed it earlier, wasn't starting another argument.

That is a lie. It is basically like saying to people like me and others oh don't worry how hard you have worked to get into cambridge your degree is worth the same as someone from london met. If you think this is true your seriously deluded.

Depends on the degree. Law firms won't be snatching up London Met grads any time soon but they will be recruiting at Nottingham.

Nursing, Social Work + other allied health professions and Engineering (accredited of course) are the only exceptions to this.

To be honest, top unis offering nursing and social work are definitely more favoured too due to better practical placements carried out during the course.
