Have a look into what you d want to do if you went to uni. You could fast track an a level maybe but an as might be enough for some unis

If you have equivalent to 3 level 3 quals yes but if it means you have equivalent to 2 you could be a little restricted or just be looking at foundation years.

what units have you taken? Seems like you could just have 2 level 3 quals which could be a bit restricting when applying for uni

Ive just looked up what type of i.t course you might be doing, and i think it is a level 3
If it's a level 3 I.T. course, its automatically likey to be a equivalent more towards AS-levels than A-levels( if our only doing it for 1 AS-level year) But you would have to check with your teacher as a Cambridge national seems to be rare as i did a BTEC(QCF) certificate(AS-Level only) in I.T

Yeah I wan't to do a level 3 Cambridge national for IT for two years not one because I will be doing media A level for two years as well alongside it.

Will this mean I will have three A levels in total and will be able to go to University?

A level 3 cambridge technical will be equivalent to A level but it depends which one you take. You won't study 43 units - you'll do a selection of them over the two years.

There are different versions - certificates, diplomas and extended diplomas. You need to know which one you're studying to know if you're eligible for university. You will need at least the 2 A level equivalent alongside your A level.

Who recommended the C-Tech to you?
