    Alryt Peps heres my issue...

    I have applied for 3 courses at my local College...

    BTEC National Diploma in Business

    Edexcel GCE in Applied I.C.T Double Award

    GCE A Levels(AS and A2) Studying;
    Business Studies, Information and Communication Technology &
    Psychology


    I have always been wanting to study Psychology and Business, as I have studied I.C.T throughout my secondary school life.

    I am very unsure of what the course entail and if I would like them.
    So I am basically asking for all pupils with any experience of these courses to give me their views and tell me what I should go for and why.

    Thanks

    I think the middle one will only give you "2 A levels" whereas the first and 3rd will give you "3 A levels"

    BTEC National Diploma in Business gets me 3 A-Levels

    GCE in Applied I.C.T is Double Award gets me 2 A-Levels

    GCE A Levels(AS and A2) gets me 2 A-Levels also

    I don't really mind the difference between 2 and 3 A-Levels, its just finding the course I will enjoy doing the most. Which is why i've come on this to ask students or anyone with experience of any of these subjects for their opinion to help me decide.

    Thanks sigstuff for your input but can you explain why applied ICT is boring ?

    I am also looking for as much information on the Psychology subject, as I have had a keen interest in this area but am very unaware of what the course entails.

    I guess it depends on whether you prefer exams or coursework as to whether you would find it boring yourself.
    There's so much coursework and it just drags on for ages, I got so bored with it and just lost all interest in the subject. I thought it would be a lot more about the technical side of ICT but it was mainly just writing loads about how the layout of websites and presentations attract users etc, not very fun.

    that would get you three A levels, unless you dropped one at AS? Which isn't advisable

    You should probably post a seperate thread in the A-level Psychology help section, you'd get more replies for that subject there, especially as this is called 'Business, ICT..'

    You can't get 2 A levels from doing 3 subjects. Unless you fail one of them. Doing 3 subjects will get you 3 a levels.
    I do psychology and enjoy it, although there is a lot of remembering studies involved.

    There are a lot of studies done by psychologists that are used to back up psychological theories, and you need to refer back to these studies during exams.
    Google A Level Psychology and you should get loads of info that way.
