BTEC Science can be combined with a wide variety of other courses. It goes well with A Level courses where there is some science orientated thinking such as Psychology, Geography and PE. It fits well in a science programme containing A Levels in Biology and/or Chemistry. It is particularly helpful alongside BTEC Health and Social Care as a preparation for degrees in nursing and related fields, and similarly alongside BTEC Sport or A Level PE as a preparation for degrees in sport related fields. In finalising a programme of courses, consideration should be given to the extent to which courses support each other and to the overall quantity of coursework involved.
