    Hello I am from England and currently studying a btec level 3 which if I get a distinction, distinction, distinction it is equivalent to 3 a's at a levels, I am aware that I have to take my SATs if I wan't to go to an American College(university) but will American Colleges accept btec students who do well in their SATs and also I am in my first year of college in England and I want to move to America next year so is it possible for me to go to an American College with only GCSE's and a good mark in the SATs. thank you for helping.

    probably depends which uni you apply to there... check their site or email their admissions to ask.

    But yes in real terms, it is seen as equivalent by some, as the above poster says, you need to check with their admissions, alevels are highly favourable but I'm sure some universities will accept BTECs

    Yeah because I am an aspiring scriptwriter and my BTEC focuses on film and television and i have been writing scripts since i was 9 the BTEC might give me an advantage because it is hands on experience which is important in the film industry .

    I'm sure you'll get in then, if you wanted to do more academic study then BTECs would be a problem, but I'm fairly certain most will accept you now
