So I am in year 11 and finishing my gcses and I don't know what course to choose for sixth form. I am good at writing essays but I think if it was a 2000 word essay or a 6000 word essay I wouldn't be able to write an essay that long, maybe essays which have no limit and you can write however much you want and I am also good academically. So which course do you think would be most suited to me? A levels or btec?

Does the college/sixth form you are interested in have a taster evening about A-Levels/Btec? This can give you more information about the path and you can talk with the subject teachers in more depth about the courses.

If you are talented academically, I would recommend that you go for A-Levels. It will challenge you more and it opens up a lot more options for you later on. If you are concerned about essay writing, it may seem daunting now, but you will get more practice when it comes to actually studying A-levels and it will come easily to you.

You will be able to write essays of any length, if you put your mind to it. However, I did all essay based subjects at A level, and wasn't once required to write a 6000 word essay... That's almost dissertation length.

Don't get put off by essay length. It's good to get used to this, otherwise further study will come as a real shock to the system. Do what you're good at, and interested in.

They usually ask you to write 2000 word essays or 6000 word essays in btecs which is why I was asking.
