    I emailed the uni I want to study business management at to ask about entry requirements. They told me that I wouldn't be accepted because I'm doing a btec in IT and not business even though I told them that the 2nd year is going to be business related. They then said that I would be eligible to apply but my application won't be the strongest.

    My question is when I am applying for uni will I be able to put down which units I have done and not just the name of the qualification? I am asking this because if I put the names of the units they will know that some of the second year units are relevant to business management.

    As above. UCAS lets you enter your subjects and grades but if you want to enter modules and unit then there is an option to do this too.

    For example I entered that I did Adv. Higher Biology and my grade but since I was applying to environmental and earth science course I added the 3 modules I did as one was Environmental Biology.
    Its set up to allow you to show specifically what you did as a lot of subject vary a lot depending on modules such a History.
