    It's extended diploma level 3 obviously a levels are much better I wanted to do them but I didn't get a grade b. I wanna try and get distinction in all my units but all the best uni won't take that most likely as btec sounds like it's for people who weren't smart enough to do a levels

    I did BTEC science l3 and got 3xD* and got a place at university of Hertfordshire for optometry. I know its a different course but it really depends on the uni.

    I did all btecs as my A levels and I got offers from all of my choices. Plus with btecs you are guaranteed the grade that you will get. Plus try checking university entry requirements on the course you would like to do. I did btec ICT as one of my A levels.

    Seen you post this twice and you're incorrect, they are both the same level.

    Look at these stats;

    No degree but in professional or managerial or professional job:
    BTEC: 49%
    A Level: 41%

    Graduate Employment *:
    BTEC: 80%
    A Level: 74%

    Studied Engineering, Computing or Business / Finance (High earning sectors):
    BTEC: 56.1%
    A Level: 26.8%

    Likeliness of achieving a First Class degree:
    BTEC: 12.2%
    A Level: 11.4%

    *"Across all regions, BTEC graduates in skilled trade occupations earn more."

    It just that I thought a levels mean more as you need better grades to get in them

    I don't think that those statistics prove that BTECs are better or worse than A levels because all of these statistics could have been affected by so many other factors. The only statistic that I wouldn't ignore is the first one.
