Hi there,
I am almost finishing my first year of IT BTEC. My current grade is D*D and we are planning to finish by May half term. I am unclear what to do next. I wish to go to university to study either Philosophy or English Literature (or both) however this year I had to do BTEC. I will be 18 by the time I finish this course in May and have a few options left, listed below. My question is what one would be best? I don't mind self studying an a level or two at home alongside BTEC as I had done the same with GCSEs.


2 year BTEC + 2 year A Level: English Lit (private)
END: D*D*D*, A
Finish 2019

2 year BTEC + 1 year A Level: English Lit (private)
END: DDD, B
Finish 2018

1 year BTEC, 2 year a levels: English, History, Philosophy (at college)
END: D*D, AAA
Finish 2019

1 year BTEC, 1 year 2 a levels: English & Maths (private)
END: D*D, AA
Finish 2018
