    • Thread Starter

    hello im in the middle of year 11 and im very confused on what i'm going to do after gcses.
    i know for sure that i'm taking maths and japanese a level but im thinking about doing it with IT or business btec alongside it. the only problem is im not sure if i should do an extended diploma which is equivalent to 3 a levels or just do a regular diploma which is equivalent to 2 a levels. will extended diploma be too time consuming because im already taking 2 a levels or should i do it anyways because it's a better qualification then a regular diploma? plz i need some answers!!!!!!!!!!!

    Doing an extended diploma course in Business. It's no where near as hard like A level Maths, Physics and Chem (since I've done em previously) but the amount of time required to achieve consistent Ds and ultimately D*s is no less compared to those A levels. If you can spare at least 8 hours a week for your extended diploma and still be on top of Maths and Japanese, go for it.
