I did a BTEC ND (as well as three A-levels, because something inside my head believed this to be a grand idea?!)
Anyway, I totally agree about the whole, getting DDDP in a module and getting a P overall - so annoying!
Luckily I ended up with DDD at the end of it, but I can see how easy it would be to slip up from one modules mistake!

I completed the first year of a BTEC in Media Production before transferring over to A-levels. I finished that first year with distinctions. Anyone know how much that is worth me in UCAS points?

ArthurV, were you doing the 18 unit Extended Diploma or 12 unit Diploma? Had you finished 9 units or 6 units of the BTEC? Even 9 units I think you would still a Subsidiary Diploma would be a D*.

ArthurV, what A-levels are you taking? Why did you change A-levels? You would likely have 140 UCAS points.

To be honest, I have just finished a semi-gap year (more of a getaway) working in Austrailia coming off the back of my Alevels. Im just trying to gather some perspective on my academic prospects now im back. Im pretty sure it was a 12 unit Diploma and 140 sounds about right thanks.
us3481ja, I was doing a Btec in Media Production, I enjoyed the subject, but just one of those things where I couldnt relate to people on my course. When it came to getting productive collaborations going for group projects stress took the joy out of it. Too many teenagers wanting to be speilburg i guess,at that level it should be a laugh really.
Uh I did A-levels to keep myself occupied, so i stuffed my AS(we're talking es) and by the time i sorted it out for A-level i averaged on cs. I studied Philosphy, English, Spanish(dropped) and Photography, so keeping it random.

Hi I have been reading this thread, is the grading system for BTEC's level 3 to A levels still the same I got 3 Merits which 240 UCAS points and I thought it was 3 B's not 3 C's I am little disappoint. The reason why I am asking is because the first post 7 Years ago. Also the subject I was doing IT.
