I'm currently doing a level 3 extended diploma in IT and I'm astounded as to how easy this course is. In my first year, out of 18 units I got 9 Distinctions. This second year seems about the same difficulty.

It's surprising that universities accept this course for computer science. I did AS-levels previously and I'd say that BTEC courses are much more easier in terms of the theory. Yes, I know, there is more work that goes into it...but the theory that is taught to students is much, much more simplified than what you learn during A-levels.

Honestly, I dont understand the people who get the grades under DDD....

It is quite easy actually. I am predicted D*D*D* in Business, although, I've heard that IT is easier but I may be wrong. I think its just that sometimes the workload is a lot and some people miss deadlines, resulting in being capped in that unit.

Honestly, I don't know how you will progress in life with that cocky arrogant attitude. The extended diploma is worth 3 A-levels for a reason. I myself am taking the extended diploma in applied science, and it is NOT easy. Most of the theory is in conjunction with A-levels and to some degree, we actually have more "hands on" experience, hence the qualification being vocational.
Its great to see how "easy" you find your course, hell maybe your going to be the next bill gates! I wish you luck to the future.

Really sorry if I came across as arrogant...but in my opinion I see A-levels as harder qualifications

Yeah, just finished my personal statement, I cant decide on biomedical science or chemical engineering (with foundation), my PS is versatile so I can suit it to any science degree. Im too indecisive, ive researched a lot about the employment and future of biomedical scientists, and how engineers are needed, but I will have to step up on my maths, what have u applied for?

I was considering becoming a clinical psychologist, but it would be awkward being the only male guy during academic years.

Oh and it's boring.

I was talking about the BTEC Course IT. I was not talking about BTEC in a broad sense.

I did AS level ICT. BTEC IT is much more dumbed down compared to its exam based counterpart.

I have friends who also did AS Levels (Sciences) and got 2-4 U grades.They did applied science too and got DDD, which apparently holds the same weight as AAA. Theory is much easier in BTEC mate.
