Hello, I'm currently choosing my options this year as I'm in year 9, I just wondered if anyone else was, I'm one of the younger members of this community at 14 but I'm going to pick a new and "exciting" course called "The Diploma in IT".
You get the Diploma in two levels, level 1 being foundation and level 2 being the higher course. I am going to pick the higher course. I just wondered if anyone else was/is choosing their options!

Thanks.

Well, i'm currently studying the National Diploma for I.T Practitioners at College, thats a level 3 course, and is equivalent to 3 A-levels. Overall, the course i'm doing is very business based, with minor bits of programming, computer dissasembly etc. It was nowhere near as fun as the First Diploma i did last year. Theres a one year course offered at my college called the Advanced Diploma, thats only 1 year, and is equivalent to 1 A-level, from what i've been told by friends, if you like a lot of hands on work, you should go for that one, or one like it. Just be sure your making the right decision, and don't end up on a course that you hate, cause you'll end up not enjoying yourself. Anything else you wanna know mate, just say.

I want to be a Network Manager. I love working with computers and I hope to be doing that later in life.

I'm in Year 9, but I'm not taking the "Exciting New Diploma", it doesn't seem exciting enough to me. So I'm going for IT, Business Studies, Graphics and Art since they are more towards what I want my career to be in (IT, Graphic Design, Product Design etc.) If I get the choice of triple science, I may take that too, since more GCSE's isn't a bad thing.
