How A Levels compare with other courses

Think A Levels are the only route to university? Think Again!

T Levels and BTECs offer a refreshing alternative to the traditional academic route of A Levels, providing plenty of benefits to those finishing Year 11.

These vocational qualifications prioritise practical skills and real-world experience, allowing you to gain industry-specific knowledge and hands-on training.

T Levels, in particular, combine classroom learning with substantial work placements, fostering direct engagement with employers and enhancing employability.

BTECs also emphasise applied learning, so you can develop valuable practical skills.

Both T Levels and BTECs cater to diverse learning styles, offering a pathway to employment or university for those who excel in practical, vocational, and career-focused classes.

BTECs, T Levels and A Levels offer the same number of UCAS points for entry to university
