    I’m so sorry to waste your time but please can you give me the best advice.

    So my courses are a level computer science, a level psychology and BTEC Applied science (level3). I am constantly getting U’s in a level computer science and I’m considering to drop it because what’s the point when it’s so difficult for me. I’d rather pick IT BTEC (level 3). However, I’m in my first year I don’t know if it can get me in my course. My teacher said to me that I can do the course for a year ( he said it’s a half a level?) because I don’t know if I should spend 3 years in college or 2?. I’m confused if I should drop a level computer science for a one year course or restart my whole year for a two year course? For my uni it says I need a D*D for a national diploma but is that the one year course I’m doing?(half a level?) . Please tell me the best advice

    Is your teacher suggesting you sit the AS Level for Computer Science?

    If your school/college/sixth form offers a BTEC in IT then they have to declare this on their website, or ask your teacher (but they don't always give straight answers) as to specifically which type of BTEC course your school offer.
