Help with BTEC Subsidiary and Extended Diploma in IT points and conversion

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I've finished my Extended Diploma in IT this year and Subsidiary Diploma last year. As far as I know points from both years add up together so they give me overall grade.

    Last year I only did PPP (Pass in every unit out of 9) on my Subsidiary Diploma year.

    This year I did 4 D's, 4 M's and 1 P (9 units) on my Extended Diploma year.

    In total there are 18 units.

    Overall it gives me 1380 BTEC points as I can see on my student proportal with grade of MMM from both years but I am not quiet sure whether it converts to 220 or 240 UCAS points?

    The uni I've applied for requires 220 UCAS points with grade of MMM.

    Anyone can make it clear please.

    Thanks in advance.

    MMM is 240 UCAS points so you should be ok.
