What level are you studying at? Watch
Pffff. If that's the case, they're a lot smarter than me.
I hate to say it but....
People like me who are studying for this degree to be told by government they consider it the same as a degree I already possess!
Just the virtue of having both should make you happy! Just read AT's comment and he says the same, whoops.
Why are NVQ qualifications at level 3 are easier than A-levels? Why aren't NVQ level 3 and A-levels have the same difficulty?
I'm angry at the ignorance/stupidity of the government, not that it may affect how people see my qualification.
Don't worry about it, as PQ says its just used as a very simplistic way of comparing qualifications to those abroad. In the eyes of employers it means nothing at all.
I feel there are probably 25,042 other more important reasons you should be mad at the government for
Because they are not academic in the same way, NVQ just prooves you can do somthing, depending on the topic it can be very easy. Take building a PC there is no way you can say that is as hard as A level maths. They are both competly different qualifcations and shouldn;t really be compared with each other, this why most universites won't accept them, although some regconise them in conjunction with IB, A2, AVCE etc.
I know some uni's accept NVQ level 3, especially the ex-polytechnics.
