I am currently in my first year of college studying the BTEC Level 3 90 credit diploma in health and social care. I'll get 2 grades at the end of this year. By the end of the year I will have achieved the 90 credit Diploma and hope to leave it there.

I was thinking about only doing A level Psychology on its own in my second year of college by fast tracking it in one year.

I have experience studying Psychology AS in 2015-2016 and also there is a Psychology unit in H+SC that I am currently studying.

I feel like a mix of A levels and a BTEC is good because my BTEC is 100% course work and I want to:

> better prepare myself for university exams

> increase my likelihood of getting into a Russel Group Uni/ getting an offer for the course I want to study (Sociology and Education BA) at the University of Birmingham.

> I think Studying H+SC for 2 years would become boring and I see the same faces every time I have a lesson where as if I change subjects I'll get to do something new and meet new people.

If I take this route will I end up with the equivalent of 3 A levels or 2.5? Is this plan a good idea?
