I believe a NC is worth 2 a levels (if at level 3) and ND is worth 3 (if at level 3).

The National Diploma is worth more, and is harder. Essentially.
You could probably get into Uni with the BTEC NC + An A Level as where, but you can get into Uni with just a BTEC ND.
Depends what you want to do in the future, personally I believe the BTEC ND is an excellent qualification to have, regardless of which area you are studying, I myself took the BTEC ND for ICT Practitioners and barring a massive marking **** up it's got me to Uni.

With a diploma you get three a levels and with a BTEC certificate you only get 2 however collages well in my recommended those doin a BTEC certificate should take an A level subject to make for the third grade.

Usually only those with more experience can go on to do the certificate, but most do so after A Levels, or to stay on another year at college.

National Certificate = 11/12 units equivalent to 2 A-levels
National Diploma = usually 17/18 units equivalent to 3 A-levels.
