    Ok, so an offer at my uni changed from Distinction in BTEC (equivalent to A at a-level), A and B. It is now just 'gce A-Level AB'. Does this include the BTEC?

    Thanks if you know.

    If you don't do A levels I would assume nothing as changed.

    Nope, they are treated as seperate qualifications with different names. Have you got your BTEC results now? That may explain the change in the offer, if part of it (the BTEC is already fulfilled

    My teacher said I'm likely to get a D* (Distinction Star) but I have not yet received any official papers. That's a shame to hear they're different though. Thanks.

    Sorry, I must've misread your post earlier. Your BTEC might have already been moderated and the mark given to your uni. If so, then that might explain the change.
