Dropping out of the second year of a BTEC? Watch
In addition to this, I can only think of two benefits of staying which is finishing the course would mean I could go to UNI (I am 100% sure I don't want to attend UNI) and completing it would please family members.
Despite the positives of leaving compared to the negatives I am still scared to drop out? I am in two minds and really stressed out due to this so any advice or anybody's past experience will be greatly appreciated!
I think the biggest thing you have to think of here is if you really want to pursue media. Dropping out half way through a BTEC will leave you with nothing to show (unlike A level)... Speak to one of your tutors or even a guidance councillor about your options just to settle your mind - you never know, they might have an option you hadn't thought of
First year extended diploma = 90 credit diploma (1.5 a levels)
First year diploma = subsidiary diploma (1 a level)
First year subsidiary diploma = btec certificate (0.5 a levels / 1 AS level)
