    So I'm currently about to start a BTEC level 3 extended diploma in business, as an alternative to my initially chosen A levels (Spanish, psychology and business).

    But either way, I am highly intrigued in psychology, which I do still want to pursue academically.

    I am fluent in French as I am a native speaker, so I was also wondering whether I could do my level 3 BTEC, but also do psychology and French A2s through the second year of my BTEC or the year after finishing the BTEC, when I'm 18.

    I'm 16, turned in August, so in July 2019, when I would have finished my level 3 btec, I'll still be 17.

    So can I at 18, still do 2 Alevels alongside the btec without having to pay? OR could I also perhaps start the Alevels during the time I do the BTEC? Do I have to do the AS before I get into A2 or is it different now (since the curriculums changed and you do all exams at the end of the second year for a straight A2)

    It's possible to do them at the same time but its best to ask your sixth form/college and to check if the timetable clashes or not.
