Well many teachers have said that the AVCE is harder than A levels, having done both I am not sure if thats true but they both give you different skills.

There is no way you can pass the AVCE without putting in a lot of hard work, I was working around 20 hours a day none stop during my last few weeks of the AVCE. Its not that easy, things like Systems Analysis are very hard.

The AVCE proves that you are willing to work and you can meet deadlines. A levels also proove this but are more about the ability to reason and develop a logical argument.

I would do an A2 aslongs side it like I did, it will just balance it out a little.

It will get harder I'm surprised you managed to get a good grade on your database without having to do any studying at home.

I got an AB in my AVCE and a B in my AS Business Studies. A lot of the stuff I have learn't has come in useful but my degree course is a lot more tecnical than the AVCE was. I personaly would have liked to have done more programming in my AVCE.
