    Hey guys,

    I’m having some serious issues trying to convert my BTECs into UCAS points. I achieved the following at 6th form but I have been working full time since (3 years ago). I have looked at the tariff tables, but I am struggling because of the variations of the course. This is what Is printed on my certificates from 6th form.

    Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Award in IT Practioners with DISTINCTION.
    4 Units Completed at Distinction
    2 Units Completed at Pass

    Edexcel Level 3 Certificate in Business (QCF) with MERIT
    **BTEC Level 3 Cert. (=50% OF NATIONAL AWARD 28-36)**

    2 Units Completed at Pass
    1 Unit Completed at Distinction

    Since leaving 6th form in 2011 when I was awarded the above BTEC’s, I went on to do a Business Administration apprenticeship. I completed the apprenticeship and was awarded the following

    National Vocational Qualification (QCF)
    EDEXCEL Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Business and Administration (QCF)


    If anyone would assist in converting these into UCAS points, I would be very grateful!

    Edexcel Level 3 BTEC National Award in IT Practioners with DISTINCTION. = 120 points (http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works...#btecnationals _

    Edexcel Level 3 Certificate in Business (QCF) with MERIT: 40 points (http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works...qualifications _

    **BTEC Level 3 Cert. (=50% OF NATIONAL AWARD 28-36)** - I can't tell if this is a distinct certificate or more detail on the qualification above


    National Vocational Qualification (QCF)
    EDEXCEL Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Business and Administration (QCF) - again I can't tell with this one - if it was a BTEC it would usually have a grade attached (DDD to PPP)....if it does have a grade then it would supercede your CERTIFICATE above (ie tariff points can only be counted from one of the two qualifications not from both because they're the same subject(
