This "B-Tec vs A-Level" argument is pathetic.
I have done both and I must say, B-TEC has taught me valuable skills that are useful for the career I am pursing, and everyday scenarios. It also enabled my knowledge and understanding about the topics in depth, which will greatly benefit me once I start my degree.
Besides learning about your chosen subject, BTEC also teaches students how to be punctual with handing in assignments before deadlines, how to pick out key information, referencing sources so you don't plagiarise, how to prepare yourself for employment etc.
You're also given the opportunity to go on work experience that strongly relates to the course, in order to gain first-hand experience and a "taste" of what it's like to be in that specific working environment. This is something that you can add into your CV and/or university application. Depending on the career/course you want to do.
A-levels is quite restrictive compared to BTEC as you're only taught about things to a certain extent, and pretty much learning how to pass the exams. People are more likely to forget what they have learnt after completing their exams anyway. However, the things you have learnt in A-Levels could be useful in your degree as well and teaches you how to handle exams, and techniques.
I'd say both are great in their own way.
It's just sad how people think it's acceptable to put others down for doing BTEC. It's none of your damn business if the person is doing BTEC over A-Levels.
You're still going to study the same degree whether you did BTEC or A-Levels.
Stop being ignorant. If you don't like BTEC threads, then don't comment. Posted from TSR Mobile
