why is there one academic pathway to uni?Watch
Access courses are similar to btecs and btec is more vocational while A levels are academic. Why is there only one real academic path meanwhile there are more vocational paths?
Why do you want more?
What vocational paths to university are you talking about?
There is a most common pathway to a degree, but it doesn't mean it's the only acceptable one.
Btec and access courses tend to be coursework based and limit your uni choices. Btec is vocational which can take you uni.
They only limit your choices partially and anyone with any common sense will do their research and see whether it works to get them on the course they want.
What point are you trying to make?
Why do you need more academic routes into uni?
Nothing wrong with A level, not everyone can do them because they are not clever enough (for example me). And keep doors open read my other post about choosing between english and maths.
Alternatively just do a foundation year.
Which degree do you wish to do?
