    Hi,

    The course i want to do at uni requires 280 ucas points.

    To get that on my college course ( Btec Extended Diploma in Business )
    i need to get DMM.

    I understand that this means Distinction Merit Merit , but the course is 18 units.

    Does this mean that i need to get an average of :

    6 Distinctions
    12 Merits

    Cheers

    Actually, if you got 18 merits that would come out overall as a DDM, so to get a DMM I believe it would be mostly merits with some passes, if you google BTEC grade calculator you should be able to work it out. Hope this has helped!

    If you mean for each individual unit, that would be 10 credits for each unit I do performing arts and I know some of my units are worth 20 credits but I think as your total credits only equal 180 then all your units should be 10.
