Hello, I am new to The Student Room but I am aware I can get a straight answers from people who have been in my position before.
Today I have been contemplating doing a BTEC over the 4 A Levels I have applied for as I am aware it's not to late to apply. My problem is that A Levels hold more weight and it is easier to get UCAS points. I am predicted A's across the board with an A* in Physical Education and a C in French already under my belt and the school has advised me to take A Levels but I don't know if I can take much more of complete classroom learning, my own experience for the past five years of this have brought me more stress and upset than anything with problems with bullying. I eventually want to join the Army, I have a few ideas of what but at the moment the Officer Roles I have looked at are Intelligence and Medical Support, and the soldier role I have looked at is a Ceremonial Gunner because I have grown up with horses all my life and I am female so no chance of joining the Household Cavalry.
My parents however are old fashioned and would a) never let me join as a soldier and b) are insistent on A Levels, how hard is it to get the 180 UCAS points for an officer role from the BTECs, and in the new system would top marks be enough to get the equivalent of the 180 from a BTEC even though I know it is specialised.
I was looking at Health and Social Care or Horse Management full time.
Thanks in advance
