Level 1/2 is GCSE level, level 3 for health and social is a BTEC. The BTEC is equivalent to three a levels if you study the extended diploma. But it is not classed as an level. I hope this helps

There are a lot more modules in the BTEC level 3 course, I have also studied level 1/2 health and social. You are given more case studies in the level 3 course too

Level 2 and 3 are different. Level 2 is equivalent to a GCSE standard and Level 3 is equivalent to post 16 (A level).

I think I might either do the diploma or subsidiary diploma alongside two other a levels. I just dont want it to be exactly the same as what I've already done

It won’t be the exactly same, it’ll be more difficult than level 1/2
