As far as I know, and it might have changed; the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma is worth 3 A Levels. The other qualifications are equivalent to less.

I think all the courses take 2 years , but don't quote me on that. The Level 3 Extended Diploma definitely does as my son did one.

Just to add; the Level 3 Extended Diploma, while worth 3 A Levels is very good, just bear in mind that you will only ever be able to use the qualification in that particular field the qualification is in. If you have a BTEC in Applied Science, you will never be able to use the qualification to apply for a degree in a completely different discipline. Or a job for that matter. My son did Health and Social Care, then realised that he didn't in the end want to work in that area at all. If he had done A Levels from the start they would have been so much more flexible as to the choices they would have given him.
