    Basically I'm doing a BTEC National Certificate in Sports Studies and a NVQ in Football Coaching and I have to pick one more subjec to study which I have decided will be an A-Level.

    I was thinking of doing English Language but what do you think?

    Before you get into a big debate about BTEC's being terrible or not useful or whatever please don't.

    I'm just asking for your opinion about my subject choice.

    Because I'll have enough coursework doing 12 units in Sports Studies.

    How about A-level PE, seems to fit in nicely else maybe Biology (think the Unis would prefer one of these two in addition to your BTECs).

    Sports science is a decent degree if it's what you want to go into, same as a BTEC in Graphic Design is a good route to go into a graphic design degree.

    It's all relative, some degrees call for A-levels, some call for BTECs.

    Yeah but they go under names such as "Media" and "Sociology" and "Sport"...
