Finish the BTEC....the second year is much better and even if you have got poor marks in the first year, you can make it up in the second. I just completed a BTEC in Computing, a lot of universities actually prefer the BTEC qualification to A-levels.

If anybody could assist me in this...
I want to take on some Alevels at a particular sixth form college and currently I hold 5 GCSES at Maths, English and Science. For one whole year I had been doing a Btec National in Computing (3 Alevel Equivalent course). I spent one whole year doing it and to be honest I found it so boring. So I want to change and spend 2 years doing Alevels. The teacher told me that due to my chronic lateness and bad attendance its unlikely they'll accept me. She also told me that I do not get any qualification for my first year as it is a 2 year course. When I applied for the BTEC nobody told me that I would not get any qualification for the first year of work I have done. So can anyone help me. I have cleared the problem about the lateness and poor attendance with a letter from my GP saying that I had insomnia for 2 years (which I did).
So can anybody help me in anyway preparing for some interviews and things so I might get accepted.

3 A level equivlent? Hmm....I see even BTEC's have become a subject of grade inflation. When I did one it was supposed to be a 2 A level uquivalent qualification and most folks took that with a pinch of salt.
