    Hello to all!:rolleyes:

    I was just wondering... Is anyone there that is studying BTEC and applying for UCL??? If yes, maybe any of you already got offers? Or maybe got rejected?...

    I applied for Management Science (4 years) and I am currently studying BTEC business. My GCSEs are not that great too as I only got Cs... So yeah, to be honest I am pretty nervous! There are many people that are stronger candidates than me... Do you think I still got the chance??? Btw, I meet all their requirements so there is still a hope...

    Hi Eissy, I am in the same situation as you are and we hopefully should get an offer because not all University places get filled up therefore we should have a chance.

    Hi, I'm currently waiting to hear from UCL to study management and I done BTEC business in college. I also got a B in Maths and English GCSE. I got D*D*D* in my BTEC course (I had taken a gap year after college). I'm worried about whether they accept me or not too!

    Before you applied did you do research into how many Btec students each uni took in previous years?

    Don't be too dissapointed with yourself, Brunel is brilliant university. The competition for universities such as UCL is an unnecessary joke, my friend had phenomenal A-level grades and still got rejected. Besides, there's only a 5 place difference between UCL and Brunel for a Management degree. All the best with your decision, however!
