    Just wondering how many GCSE's I actually have as at college interviews none of my level 2 BTEC's were accepted and I was told I only have 5 A* -C grades when I was told I had more as my BTEC's were equal to GCSE level.

    Here are my grades :
    (I am currently doing a level 2 functional skills in Maths but im still going to retake GCSE Maths at college, does this count?)

    Business studies BTEC level 2 Merit
    Animal care BTEC level 2 Merit
    English Language- A
    English Literature - A
    Core Science - C
    Additional Science - C
    Maths - D (going to be retaking at college)
    Geography - C
    French - D

    Thankyou

    You have 5 A*-C GCSE, 6 if you successfully retake maths, and 2 BTECs.
    Whether the BTECs and the functional maths will count as gcse will depend on what courses/qualifications you are applying for and sometimes where. Whether an employer recognises them as equivalent will depend on the employer.
