either way a btec gives you an alevel. when i did level 3 uniformed public services (2 year course but i could leave after 1st year with 1 alevel or do the 2 yrs and get 3 )

btec aren't that bad, what course are you doing and what career choice do you want to go into?

Up to the school.

If it was only English then why not ask to do 2x A levels and 1 BTEC subsid diploma?

Don’t listen to them, if you wanna become a lawyer you’re going to need them A levels because when applying for a training contract most law firms expect a grade of AAB or minimum ABB. i wish i knew this at your age young blood. DONT MAKE THE MISTAKE I DID

I think BTEC are fine as long as you arent after the elite unis.
The nuclear option is simply to redo GCSE so they let you do A level next year if you believe A level is so important.

Can’t they just let me do it for now cuz I’m going to be retaking in October and getting my results in January it’s just gonna be waste of time if I redo a whole year if tht makes sense

Stick with the BTEC, you can still get into tons of universities for Law. Also, you're not even guaranteed of getting a higher grade in English Language.

I was in the same situation as you! I got downgraded in my English Literature. I got a 4 even though I got 6s in all my mocks. This then affected my entry into sixth form. I am now in college doing a BTEC level 3 which is similar to a-levels just more focused on one specific area. Is there anything specific that you want to do career wise?

You will still be able to get into most unis with btec.
If you cnat manage a 5 in GCSE, then the type of unis you would be missing out on are unlikely to interest you anyway.
