    AS the above states I was just wondering if Btecs count towards your 5A*-C Grades at GCSE for example if someone was to get 2 passes at a Btec(equivalent to 2 C grades at GCSE's) or they do not count as anything and are over looked because most of them are non exam based.
    Also when applying to uni would they take your Btec into consideration as a GCSE equivalent? Just curious because one of my subject is just coursework based.

    Edit: Any helpful comments will be appreciated.

    Well, what I don't under is..

    Core Science is harder then BTEC Dip Pass science so... how can BTEC DIP be 4 GCSE at C and core science at B for 1 GCSE be worse? No logical sense but.. yes BTEC is worth it's a vocab qualification BTECs more simple and into modules instead of lots of revision.

    I also don't think universities will accept BTECs.. GCSE/A-Level = University // BTEC L1/2/3 = College anything above maybe in university.
