If im doing 2 BTECS (IT AND SCIENCE), which are Level 3 Subsidiaries does this mean at the end of year 12 i will have four grades?

My realistic targets are to get all distinctions, so will my results sheet be like this at the end of year 12: -

BTEC IT = D D
BTEC Science = D D

This will total 420 UCAS points (If im correct ) ?

(P.S Im doing the National Certificate at the moment, when im in year 13 i will be doing the National Diploma I'f im correct? AND i do 6 units of IT in year 12 and 13 and for Science i do 6 units in year 12 and 7 units in year 13)

Thanks, i await replies

Why aim for Distinction when you could get a Distinction*?
Assuming that for year 12, you are taking 6 units for IT, and another 6 units for science, then you will get 2 grades. The highest you could achieve would be D* D*, or 280 UCAS points.
If in year 13, you take another 6 units for each subject (this may vary depending on how many credits your units are worth), then you would get an additional 2 grades. Then the highest you could achieve overall would be D* D* D* D*, or 560 UCAS points.

Subsidiary = 1 grade (6 units)
Diploma = 2 grades (12 units)
Extended = 3 grades (18 units)

Extended = 3 grades (18 units)
So this means il get the diploma right? Because im doing 2 BTECS science and IT which both consists of 6 units in year 12 and year 13. The 2 BTECs in year 12 would make up 12 units so diploma right? or is it subsidiary in year 12 then it progresses to diploma in year 13? It must be diploma because look at samsama's reply to this post .

First year you will get 2 subsidiaries, one in each subject.
Second year if you do another 6 units in each subject you will get 2 diplomas, one in each subject.
