    Ok
    Back in October/September my teacher comes in and says the computer science teacher who is teaching us computer science has left which resulted in my whole class doing ict btec. I do not want to have any btec certificates because i see them only for not so smart people. My question is can i still change my subject? and if not what do i do because we have had many supply teachers which are all bad and my current teacher now is bad nobody is learning anything i feel like i will fail even if i do i wont really care because i did not choose to do ict btec.

    I would go ask your teacher, at the end of the day they're the ones running your school

    I'm guessing you're in year nine? If not the username needs adjusting lol. I hadn't even made my choices at year nine.

    Tbf BTEC ICT is an easy grade if you're into computer science - I slept through all the lessons and still got a distinction

    You should ask your form tutor or head of year; I picked my options in year 9 and changed one in the second term so it's possible, especially in year 9 as you have an extra year to catch up.

    No fair! Our BTEC ICT was basically how to use Microsoft Office.
