Hi everyone, basically this is my situation. I'm currently in year 11 and doing quite average, in some subjects I already have C's or above and in my BTEC's Pass or above. Anyway my passion has been sports and gymnastics for as long I can remember. I'm nearly 16 now and old enough to know what kind of career I would like but I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I want to do a Sports Studies degree (UCAS Code C600 or similar) and then my PGCE in Physical Education and then become a P.E Teacher.
My problem is should I pick four good, solid A-Level subjects to prepare me for a Sports Studies degree or a BTEC National Certificate/Diploma in Sports Studies with one A-Level and an NVQ?
I've checked several university websites for the entry requirements and the majority of universities require points.
My application for sixth form has to be submitted sometime this month.
Also my school doesn't do the P.E A-Level and doing Biology is out of the question. I felt I have built a good rapport with some of my teachers and my sixth form is one of the best in the city so I don't really want to go to another sixth form or college just to o the P.E A-Level.
What should I do?

I've only just seen your message, so I'm sure you will have applied by now - what did you go for in the end? I would recommend doing a general sports degree and then doing a PGCE. This is what I did. I did a 4 year sports science degree and I've just got onto a PE PGCE course to start in September. If you have any questions just give me a shout.
