    I've been looking and hearing alot about the topic of A level's VS btec so here's a scenario

    Would you rather have

    A level grades CCC(your favourite choice of subjects)

    Or

    BTEC national diploma grades DDD(Worst subject choice in your eyes) and BTEC national award grade D (favourite choice of subjects)

    Oh and also give the subject choices please.

    I personally would go for A levels in my best subjects (English, Art and health and social care)
    Rather than the BTEC national diploma in my worst subject (Sport science) and Award (Art)

    A-levels since BTEC is vocational and I can't see myself in a career that I don't like.

    I don't understand what you mean by, 'I can't see myself in a career that I don't like.' Does the BTEC not offer the subject you want to study?

    It does, but the OP's scenario was based on doing a subject you didn't like in a BTEC vs A-levels that you would like.

    If the BTEC was in a subject that could get me into what I want to do, then I wouldn't care because the equivelent of As would be a good thing compared to Cs.

    If it was something like Health and Social Care then no, not at all because there wouldn't even be a possibility to get me into where I'd want to be.

    No, cos neither choice would get me into the course I want to study. The NA wouldn't be enough experience on its own and the CCC A-Levels wouldn't give me the points or experience
