    If you want to get into a decent uni then do some well respected traditional A Levels, it will also help when coming to employment people want employees with a wide range of skills.
    Yeah like City Uni, Queen Mary Uni of London and King's College Uni of London don't consider BTECs(!)

    i did btec certificate in business and got into sheffield hallam, to get on the course i wanted i needed 240 points, which was easy considering in 1st year of college i did 3 other AS subjects got an E in one, D in another and C which i carried on to A2 and got D. If youre doing another subject aswell u will find it quite easy to get in. I got double distinction in business so ended up having far more points than needed (if i had of only got MM i would still get in).
    hope that helps!
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
