    Is btec level 3 extended diploma good? I couldn't get into a levels and I still wanna go into a good university, I heard that the the course is equivalent to 3 a levels, I have also checked Manchester university and I need to get 180 credits---I don't know what this means, also feel guilty and scared because of my gcse results.i was predicted around 8-9 gcses but i came out with 5, i want to study at the university of Manchester, but am worried that because of my gcse results and the fact that am not doing a levels could potentially never get me a place, am going to study a business extened diploma and work hard to get d*d*d* (if thats possible).and i was wondering will me doing a btec instead of alevels make me less favourable than students doing a levels .
    Please some one help.
