    Ask the college . There are several courses run by different exam boards with that name. Its important you id which board, but they appear to be GSE/AS and A level. That means different from BTEC because it will be more exams rather than coursework. Also an A level needs you to pick two other subjects whereas BTEC extended diploma is all you study for two years. Go and ask your teacher about which board, hen look up the specification online so you can see whats covered and the exam format, then you can make up your mind.
