I would choose A Level. Here's a website link with comparisons between A Levels and BTECs https://targetcareers.co.uk/careers-...-should-i-take

Here's a thread on TSR that is very similar to your question but is a bit old https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4115829

Do you prefer doing lots of coursework or sitting exams after learning content after content two years later?

Some universities prefer you not to have done law at A Level because it teaches you bad habits. I don't know about Btec but if you decide to do A Levels don't do Law if you want to do law at the unis which doesn't accept it. You might want to do some more research about the unis you want to apply to. But that being said some unis do accept it and some unis may even prefer it. It all depends on the uni. If you really want to do law and think that it will be enjoyable for you go for it, but do keep the unis you want to apply to in mind.

A level law. From experience unis do not care if you have A level law, this is a myth, they just are not bothered if you have it or not. They only care about you getting AAA. So definitely not BTEC. Study A level law if you want, to see if you want to study it at degree level (like me) but otherwise just study 3 solid subjects that you can do well in. Ideally they would showcase both essay writing and analytical skills.

It depends what you see yourself doing with it. A level is supposedly the top qualification accepted by everyone. BTEC is accepted by a high % of unis for most courses. All things being equal if BTEC works for the target entrance and you are much better at coursework then do BTEC. If you have a choice or do better at exams then do A level.
