    Hi,
    I have gained 240 points from doing a BTEC Dip in Early Years, but I do not have maths G.C.S.E.
    Has anyone got on a course with these results?
    I really do not want to do a pre access course for another two years. I have looked on ucas but most say they need more points for everything!
    Any help would be great.

    Well what do you want to study?
    There will be courses accepting 240 points, yes, but whether they're something you are interested in is another matter.

    For any course leading to Qualified Teacher Status you will need GCSE Maths at a minimum of a grade C as standard. This is a basic government requirement to enter the profession. I say this due to your BTEC subject choice.
