BTec results: Vocational qualifications 'not an easy option'


A BTec student who has been offered a place at university said practical qualifications can be more appropriate than academic ones such as A-levels.

Tasnim Bhuiyan, 21, from Cardiff is one of thousands of students in Wales getting their final results today.

He said the practical nature of the BTec qualification helped him get a place studying computer security at the University of South Wales.

It comes as employers’ body CBI Wales has said parents and teachers should put a greater focus on vocational qualifications.
