    ideally i would like to work in a magazine, cliche i know. surely doing something practical pays off more in that industry than something academic?
    Have you thought about English literature and media A levels?

    If you think the BTEC is for you, then I would urge you to do English literature alongside it, not geography.

    Or you could take English literature, media studies and geography at A level.

    BTECs and diplomas are far more specialised. If you know what you want to do and you're sure about it, then go for it. A Levels add some flexibility about what you can do, and you get wider range of skills and knowledge from the varied subjects.

    And as for moving college, don't worry about leaving your friends, you'll still meet up with them and make a whole bunch of new friends (hopefully)

    BTEC = 3 A levels.

    My brother got his diploma and is now in the police so it has its advantages

    Extra travel for less of a reward, you'd be better off with A levels in English lit, Geography and something else tbh but do what you want.
