    I just wanted to know is it better to fail your A levels at the end of year 13? Or is it better to do AS then switch to BTEC and then have the top grades?
    I don't know because I did AS and didn't do so well, but my teachers are saying not to do BTEC but I am worried about failing my A levels and then having to go through clearing.I want to work in healthcare .

    Its best to stick with one or the other. BTEC takes two years, iirc, so if you switch after AS, you will have three years of work.
