    have been doing BTEC National Diploma for the past two years, unfortunately, due to personal problems, I haven't obtained grades good enough to get me into the University of my choice. (my final grade was MPP)
    This year, I decided to take a BTEC National Certificate in Business in order to improve my grades. My predicted grade for now is DD.

    Do universities add up UCAS points form two different BTEC courses?

    I need 320 UCAS points for my dream course.

    160 (MPP) + 240 (DD) = 400 - if they do, that would get me into university, if not i'd have to stay in college for one more year.
