    Is doing BTEC LEVEL 3 Business seen as bad/weak? I got told its not because its long and you learn more in depth and the same as A Level Business... Only reason I chose it was because its equal to 2 A Levels whereas business A level is just 1? So its best to get 2 A Levels out of it! Is it bad for universities?

    I wouldn't say so but you would have to check the entry requirements of any unis you're looking to apply to.

    I did business too, alongside an A-Level. Business is the easiest coursework based subject. I got into one of the top 20 universities in the UK and got offers from others too obviously. While the intelligent people at my school struggled getting A's to get into universities that I got unconditional offers for and I GOT INTO IT THROUGH BTEC! haha
