It really depends on the subject you want to take at university. If you are looking at taking a more logic based subject such as maths, sciences, psychology or English then I would definitely suggest going down the a level route.
If you are looking at more of a vocational subject such as business, ict, art, fashion, architecture then I would definitely go down the btec route.
I wanted to study business and my school is notorious for badmouthing the btec due to a level funding. So I went to study business, maths and ict, which I ended up absolutely hating. A level business is worthless (a couple of graphs and basically just the gcse) compared to the btec which has most of the same modules as I will be studying in my management course, therefore giving me a good advantage over other people on my course.
Btec prepare you in ways school didn’t in terms of time management and independent research which is essential at uni, not to **** off the a levels but they’re just advanced GCSEs 🤷*♀️
The extended diploma is worth the same as 3 a levels and are taken by almost every university out there, I got into all 5 of my options including two russell group unis and Loughborough (which I’m starting at in a few weeks) to study management.
The btec is seen as the cop out route but take it from someone who has done both, if you’re looking at studying a more vocational subject then you will gain so much more than just reading a text book and doing a short exam.

Thanks so much for your reply x
Btec seems to have more advantages tbh I’m considering it more now

I’ll be honest, I think for that pathway I would probably say the a levels would be a better route especially for bio med but if you want to do the btec I would check out health and social care.
