So, does this mean that the 90 credit is better than the subsidiary diploma?

so the extended diploma is the best out of them all?

you'd need an extended diploma if you had no other level 3 qualifications.

The access course on its own would be enough really, having both won't really give you an advantage i d have thought.

But I am only 17 and most acesd courses require you to be 18-19+

I have enrolled at college to do the 90 credit diploma but at the same time enrolled at sixth firn to do the subsudsrary extended diploma alongside sociology and philosophy.

So, am I not better at sixth form than college?

There is no such thing as a subsidiary extended diploma. I presume you mean the subsid diploma. If you are doing this as well as 2 A levels then you will probably be fine.

So you will have full sociology and philsophy a levels and the btec which putting them together gives you the equivalent to 3 a levels but college would give you 1.5 a levels so better staying at sixth form unless you do the 90 credit diploma and do another year to get the extended diploma
