Is it true btec applied science and alevels sciences are both as competitiveWatch
I'm not sure how they compare in terms of difficulty, but I've heard that they are in between GCSE and A Level. In terms of competitiveness they are less competitive that A Level sciences. The A Levels go into a lot more depth as they only focus on one science each so prepare ou better for science curses at uni and are the expectation for standard offers when applying to a lot of unis. Russel group unis probably won't accept someone with BTEC Applied Science for science courses as they don't prepare you enough for the intensity of the science content at uni.
