    Hi David

    I don't think it really matters whether you do Diploma or NVQ 4. I did the 1st two years the NVQ route, but then my college changed to doing the Diploma route and recommended I change to Diploma for my final year.

    I was told the final qualification result is the same, so it didn't matter... the only real difference being that NVQ route I would do a Portfolio and the 2 exams PCR & PEV, whereas Diploma I don't need a Portfolio, would only do the one MAC exam but would need to do the Ethics simulation. Swings and roundabouts.

    Best of luck in your exams etc!

    its shouldnt matter as the college should be able to sort what units and what extra little questions that you might have to do as my college has changed from one route to the other then back again ?
