    Just out of curiosity; looking to see how many people are planning on going to university after finishing their BTEC course - quite a few on my Level 3 Applied Science aren't!

    So, if you are:
    What course are you doing currently?
    What course do you want to do?
    University choices?
    Predicted grades?

    You must first find a course and know it's requirement, then check on the Ucas Website it should tell you your total points, which allows u to compare with universities' requirement, does that make sense?

    Currently doing BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports Development, Coaching and Fitness
    Going to do Physical Education with Outdoor Education I firmed my Leeds offer
    Turned down offers from Nottingham Trent, Staffordshire, Derby and Worcester
    Projected grade D*D*D*

    There's a few in my BTEC group that are choosing not to go, it tends to be the lower achievers and those that don't have the most motivated attitude towards the course, pass pushers as I've named them before - is this the same as your BTEC group and is that why they aren't going?

    Congrats on the offers and firming a place! I'm still waiting on Bath before I can make any decisions but it's my top choice - typical that they're the last to reply lol.

    Yeah, a few "pass pushers" on my course aren't planning to go but some people are getting merits and distinctions in most units and don't plan to continue to university but I don't understand why they'd to this course if they don't plan on really using it or doing anything in science.

    Just realised I hadn't actually posted my stuff :rolleyes:

    I'm currently on a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science

    Predicted grade: D*D*D*

    Congrats on your offers so far and good luck to everyone still waiting!
