Can Anyone Help??

I'm going to be starting an evening course in september and have to choose between doing NVQ level 2 or level 3. But I am unsure which to choose, I have done the first year of A level accounts but did not complete the second year so I have some experience with accounts but am no expert! I am only asking because the college website is so vague on what is required for level 2 and 3. Any help appreciated.

    How about phoning the college and speaking to one of the tutors directly? If you do start at foundation and find it too easy you can easily move up or visa versa. I know that happened at my college.

    Good luck! x

    Tried phoning the college and got through to a receptionist on the off chance
    who didn't have a clue, asked to speak to someone who did and she said that there was no one around as it was the summer holidays! Thanks anyway

    I started at Intermediate, although I had no knowledge of double entry, but had some experience. The college told me it was easier to start at Intermediate and drop to Foundation if I found it too hard. (It was hard, but I didn't need to) If you did the first year of an A level you may find you are repeating what you have already learnt. In your shoes I'd start at Level 3.

    Are you in employment if you are doing the NVQ route or is it all that is available?
