    I am going into college this year and am finding it hard to decide on whether to do BTEC or A level Law.

    I want to do Sociology, English Language and Law.

    At the college I want to go to it says the BTEC is equivalent to an A level but just coursework, no exams.
    I have heard A level Law is a lot to remember in terms of studies, names etc and personally I am not good at that and feel it would make me so uninterested in the subject because of the amount of revision needed.

    Should I do BTEC law?
    Anyone who does do it can i have some advice on what it's like?
    Thank you x

    I currently take A-Level Law from home and I have taken a few Btec’s in the past. btecs are normally seen as “less important” “not as hard” and not as rewarding. I’m not sure about law and coursework as I’ve never heard of a btec in law?! And I’m not sure if it’s very rewarding when applying for universities etc.

    I am currently studying A level law and yes you do have to remember quite a lot. However my teacher that used to be a barrister, told us that if you want to get into the university to study law, they will definitely would rather have you have A level law instead of BTEC Law. Of course, some univeristies will still take you in, however I would go down the A level route even if you are not planning on studying law in university.

    Depends on which modules you will be doing, A level law can be quite interesting. Sure, there are topics that will bore you to death but you always have modules like offences against the person or murder that are quite interesting because are case based.

    thank you, i just feel i might benefit more from BTEC as it gives me more skills and ability to learn through experience than spending time memorising for exams, and i am not that good at exams, especially trying to remember a lot of things, it makes me disinterested in the subject.
