With Oxbridge I doubt you have a chance.

And LauraDanielle you can go Btecs worth one a level.

The OP is doing a BTEC along side A-levels.

I reckon Oxbridge will pretty much ignore the BTEC and concentrate on your A-level results. However, if you want to do a degree in a related subject, then in an interview it might show initiative and extra knowledge.

Im doing one in music worth 3 A levels. i emailed Oxford and they said they would accept it as an entry route. I suppose it depends on a)the BTEC b)The course you are applying for at Oxbridge.

Oxbridge will accept the Btech depending on which subject you are doing. If it's in Business and you want to take Economics for example, then it has to be combined with a well respected and academic subject including Maths, Further Maths, French, Physics and/or History.

Oxbridge wouldn't accept the Btec unless it's combined with atleast 3 rigorous Alevel subjects.

There we go. Don't do a BTECH if you want to go to a top Uni. If only my stupid teachers told me that it was looked down upon I would have done other, well respected subjects. O, well.
