    I was wondering if I take at FE College next year (I'm in Year 11 atm)

    - A Level English Lit & Language
    - BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma IT (software development)

    along with my GCSE Maths at B I've already got, and obviously if I achieved decent grades e.g. DDD. Would I have a good chance of getting into a university and studying Computer Science?

    Yes they are still accounted for the same as A levels, and with you doing A level English transferring from college to university shouldn't be too hard. Most people that do Btec's find note taking and essay work hard as well as the examinations, but your A level should make this easier.

    Yes. I did the a BTEC IT course on its own and achieved DDD so I was able to get into a good university.

    Any reason why you are not continuing with your maths?
    You might consider doing A Level English, Double BTEC IT and A Level Maths.
    That way if doing 4 courses becomes too much, you could consider dropping one in your second year if where you are studying allows for that.

    I have a B in GCSE Maths and English. I have a conditional offer from King's College London based on achieving DDD, which is a pretty decent uni I believe
