BTEC Media - difference between one year and two year course? watch

    • Thread Starter


    Basically, I've been doing a Creative Media Studies BTEC at Sixth Form for Year 12 since I started last September. I've been planning on dropping it and just carrying on with my other three subjects (all A Levels) for Year 13, but I've heard a few people say that a BTEC isn't really worth much if you only do it for one year instead of two. I need three A Levels at AAB for my uni course, so it wouldn't matter that much, but I just don't want all my hard work this year to end up being wasted. Is it worth me carrying on with the BTEC for the full two years or would I be alright with it as a one year qualification? Thanks for any help.
