What do you mean equivalent because that doesn’t make much sense. They’re two totally different degrees and can’t be compared.

As in they have the same value. Doesn't take a genius to work that out bud.

Also, they are not degrees and yes they can be compared.

Facepalm.

Sorry I meant qualification. Secondly if it was the same value them some courses wouldn’t reject btechs. Don’t get me wrong I understand what you’re saying but the fact that it’s easier to complete and gets you in the same uni but still puts you at a slight disadvantage from a level students all at the same time, shows the difference and why they can’t be compared.

This is the same logic as people who say 2:1 from Manchester metropolitan is the same as a 2:1 from Oxford. If they are the same why am I not doing a btec why doesn't everyone just so a btec

Imagine how pathetic your life has to be to think that taking a different qualification to somebody else makes you less intelligent. Seriously.

NOBODY IN THE REAL WORLD CARES WETHER YOU DO A BTEC OR DO A - LEVELS. DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU.

I had the option to do a BTEC six years ago but I chose A - Levels and I regret it immensely, even to this day. The bashing of BTEC students is fundamentally wrong and ultimately needs to end.

In your case, the grade is the same, not the university. Are you purposely trolling now?

That's fine. But yet again, 3 D* in BTEC is the same as 3 A* in a levels. Also, you can't say that it's easier to complete without having done one yourself buddy.

You're trolling with that logic it would be my A levels done at a good sixth form > btec at college

No one is talking about colleges/sixth forms apart from you. We're talking about the qualifications.

Why don't you continue with your World of Warcraft threads, ay buddy?

Yes Btec health and social care and btec buisness is equivalent to A level further maths, A level physics, A level Chemistry, A level English, A level History, A level psychology.
TOTALLY equivalent......
A* in further maths? Exactly the same as Btec health and social care D*.
Please. Nothing wrong with btecs, but whilst the *grades* themselves may be equivalent, an A* in further maths means much more than a D* in a BTEC course. And hence, as many have stated, oxbridge and medicine dont accept them for this reason.

My girlfriends mum is currently doing a PhD on this subject. She teachers Law at a RG university and is looking at the intake of students from BTEC and comparing them with students with A Levels. Her research so far indicates that the students who come from BTEC's are as good on paper as the students who obtained A Levels but the extended writing part of exam questions in A level is where the BTEC students struggle. Some of the BTEC students last took exams for GCSE's and this was their last extended writing under exam condition. She is looking into providing a module based on this for the BTEC students.

Actually, that's very funny because I actually did do an a level (Maths) alongside my BTEC, only got an A sadly but it wasn't difficult at all. It just required looking at past papers and of course revision.

Your next comment is probably going to be, oh so if you got D* then it must've been so much easier right? Wrong. BTEC requires constant work throughout the year, especially nearer to the end where you have to produce massive documents.

A levels was just pretty much revise a month before the exam and you're good.

Heheh you are making me laff

So in your last post you deliberately avoided answering what grade you get in your btec

And here again, you avoided answering

So you probably did get a d*

Nice, so much for btec being equal

Of course, this doesnt really prove anything, but it’s something to chew upon

Come off it, a levels require constant work throughout the year too. Btec is not same cos it’s like 90% coursework

I never said they are the "same" in regards to how they work. However, it's a fact that 3 D* in BTEC is the same as 3 A* in a levels according to the Governing Bodies of Education.

The content in a btec is not as hard as stem a levels it's like how a business A level isn't a very reputable a level it's the same way with btecs plus why did reformed linear take away almost all coursework it's because coursework just isn't very good
