    All depends on what you wanna do when your older. Research them on google. I would go with a level computer science tho, but you would have to take 2 other a levels remember. As a level 3 btec is equivalent to 3 a levels.

    I did the BTEC level 3 in IT and the completed a BSc Computer Science at a top 30 ranked uni degree and am now pursuing an MSc at a top 10 ranked uni, so it worked out well for me.

    What other A levels would you take with Computer Science? And what are your goals after finishing either course?

    Depending on what units your college teach the BTEC is pretty much the same content as the A level plus loads more, you also get the benefit of practical work and an IT related work placement as part of the course.
