dropping out of sixth formWatch
someone help, am i doing the right thing?
ps.i aspire to be a business woman in the future, so i know its something im really passionate about
I study Maths physics chemistry and sociology so if you need help message me. But in regards to a business degree you don’t have to have studied business as A level business is regarded as a “easy” subject and most of the content is retaught in first year. Try and do as many essay questions as possible and get you’re teacher to mark it for you. Check examiner reports for feedback on questions students found easy or hard.
i literally said im not interested in uni or any sort of degree. i would be doing business for my own knowledge, not for that scam called uni that sets u up for life with dept and no job guarranteed
Don't drop out a B/C is A level looks better than a D/M in BTEC
I know you said you aren't too interested in uni, but even still, switching to a BTEC if you feel your overall educational experience would improve. I very quickly changed my mind over a-levels because I knew after school I wanted to continue studying music. I took a level 2 diploma, level 3, before finishing a third year with a level 3 extended (baring in mind I took three different subjects in music across these) I did zero exams, have only had one since school and that was in first year of uni, and didn't even count very much to my grade for that particular module.
Too much emphasis on a-levels being the be-all and end-all. They really aren't. So if you think it'll make you feel better and achieve more, do it. You won't lose anything.
I don't understand where you're getting this information from - they literally are no different to each other. BTEC's are just the more practical version of an a-level - it literally stands for Business and Technology Education Council. If she wants to do business, its a no brainer.
