Easy now, dont let it get to your head

You have done well

But it would be even better if you were not to disclose such a marvellous achievement and feat

Humility is good and beautiful trait

I thought this was going to be a nice thread, but sigh, everyone is just ******** on each other. Who cares what you did, A Levels or BTECs? None of it matters in the end. Christ.

In terms of rigour, that's debatable.

But it's good to see that you finally agree that they are worth the same.

Did you do a Btex

Like i said, it’s alright, nothing to be ashamed of i think

Anyways yeah it doesnt matter

Just do what you gotta do to get where you wanna go is my motto

And for some that means btec and for others that mean a level

So all is good
No problem

I know everyone gets all defensive in this argument, but in STEM they are not equal.
Where i did my undergrad the failure & drop-out rate was higher in BTEC, and a lot of them just couldn't do the maths it didn't matter how many D*'s they had, they just couldn't do it. Now at the uni where i do my postgrad courses they don't even accept BTEC in my discipline (engineering).

BTEC might be fine for humanity & social science degrees, but for STEM & in particular math focused degrees, BTEC is not on par with A-level. This is not me applying my bias, or being a ****. It's just the way it is.

This thread is people trying to show off. So what if you've got a 2.1 from UCL? Your big head attitude will hold you back instead.

Go out and get jobs.

And for the record, I don't think they're us anything wrong with BTECs. They are easier, but the coursework side prepares you for a coursework based degree.

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
Yeah you're wrong there. Same grading system, not allowed to award the degrees if it's been made easier marking, external examiners make sure of that. And you all learn from the same academic papers. This isn't a developing country.

Umm no please dont twist my words

I never conceded they are the same

They are not same in more ways than one, from content to difficulty to workload to structure

Therefore their grades cant be compared like how you said triple d* is same as triple a*

I'm glad to see everyone's coming together and seeing that 3 D* in BTEC is the same as 3 A* in A-levels.

No, I did A Levels. But they mean nothing now as I'm a graduate. Older you get, more worthless the qualifications become.

Facepalm.

I'm not the one that decided that 3 D* in BTEC is the same as 3 A* in A-levels. The governing bodies for education did.

Yeh same, i agree

In the workplace, it dont really matter tbh

And once you get some good work experience after graduating, that is what is going to help you in the world of employment

So is this like bullying for nerds mocking people about their grades instead of giving wedgies.😄

As long as you end up with the job you want at the end it does not matter.
You cannot deny though that btecs have a certain stigma and not everyone recognises them which is kind of important for a qualification.

I agree, I'm not sure how a D* in BTEC is an A* in A-level, when clearly D* is far more difficult to obtain.

Glad we finally agree on one thing buddy.
