Yeah, i just finished my music course at college, i passed with 3 merits, which is basically like Bs across the board, so i'm happy, it was a 2 year course and it was some of the best years of my life.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Oh yeah, it was a BTEC national diploma in music practice (if we wanna be precise), so i haven't got a degree yet, taking a year out then going to university to get it.
WHOMP

To all the villianous insects who preach their slanderous, dupliciticious loathing; to each beautiful walking laceration who made me weep and bleed ... I hope you choke


ROCK ON DUDES

I'm hoping to start that in September. I've just finished the First Diploma, with 4 merits and 2 pending. I had to go on the First because I wasn't any good at guitar.

Congratulations.

History of music, music recording, performance, MIDI, live sound, music video.

It depends on where you go but for us the first year was pretty focused and streamlined, but the second year was put more down to us and is more focused on gigs, the first year had more deadlines and lots of small assignments but the second year had 2 big assignments in each unit and that was it. I would reccomend it, it opens up opportunities for you, you play good gigs, and you meet other musicians who you learn alot from musically and in life in general (or at least i did) and you will probably come along alot on your instrument.

And wanna be jesus, well done dude, it isn't much harder in the second year but (at my college at least) you are left to your own devices more, i think i could have done better as i winged some of it, although that was due to my PC going wrong.

Oh yeah, all you music kids, what college do you go to?

Oh and what age are A levels? lol

The course i done is 16+ although a majority of our class are school leavers, so 16-17, we did have a few older ones though, i think A levels are 16-18 but i could be wrong.
WHOMP

I'm starting BTEC Certificate in Music Tech in September, it's annoying Exeter College doesn't do the Diploma...
NOPE.

Quote by Dreadnought
What is BTEC? What is the age range?

BTEC is basically the 'equivalent' to an A-Level, and it is all coursework based, so no exam. But you get a choice of BTECS, like National Award = 1 A-Level, National Certificate = 2 A-Levels and National Diploma = 4 A-Levels (not sure for this one.)

Again, it's for ages 16+ (or 15+ if you can do college courses in secondary school).
NOPE.

The one I'm doing is the techincal equivalent of 3 A-levels, but it depends on what level you choose.

Ages can be anything, but it's usually the same as any other college course.
