BTEC – Level 3 are the “real world” equivalents of A Levels. These qualifications are the most popular vocational qualification in UK further education, recognised and respected world-wide and valued by universities as well as employers. They also enable you to go on to study for an Honours degree. The ‘single’ is equivalent to one A Level.
These qualifications are assessed via a mix of exams, coursework and controlled assessments. Unlike A Levels, they have a modular approach so students are assessed as they progress through the course.
These courses are suitable for a wide range of students, but particularly those who prefer to be assessed via coursework.
