What course did you choose and why did you opt for a BTEC over other options?

i do btec applied science. I choose it as I didn't get the right grades for Alevels and it's more practical based rather then just exams. I really like the course and getting pretty good grades. I got distinction last year and only me and one other person got it.

I completely agree - it gives people so many more options than they may have thought. I did a BTEC in Engineering as part of an apprenticeship and it's nice to know that it can lead on to further things.

Biomedical Science sounds really cool!

that good to hear. glad to hear you enjoy your btec. tbh I feel I learned so much for doing assignment and practical work and not just information that will be just crammed in my brain just for me to forget after the exam, I actually learned some good study and independent skills.

That's good to know, and in hindsight I would probably say the same, though it's hard to tell if I'd have developed the same skills with A-levels. I definitely think the coursework aspect develops your time management skills
