Can One BTEC subject get you to University? Watch
If your IT BTEC is the Extended Diploma, then it is the equivalent of 3 A-Levels and you can get into most uni's with this qualification. The regular diploma is worth just two A-Levels and probably won't give you enough UCAS points.
If i do my National Diploma in BTEC IT, alongside having my completed Subsidary from year 12 and my Btec Science from year 12. Would that mean i have 3 a levels? Because i might have to discontinue doing btec applied science national diploma in year 13 due to insufficient student within the course.
The National Diploma in ICT is equivalent to two A Level subjects whilst the Subsidiary Diploma in Science would be equivalent to one. So yes, you would have three A Level equivalents with total UCAS value between 140 (minimum) to 420 (maximum) depending on what grades you get, from what I can gather.
But that was not that case, the issue was that they cannot allocate time to our btec science classes during the day, so i will have to after school sessions of Btec Applied science. There arent that many teachers in the science department and they focus more on the a-leve students doing science during the school hours, which is kind of annoying because they make it like BTEC is nothing, whilst it is actually the same. My retarded college lol.
I was thinking in the worst case scenario if i didnt do BTEC science in year 13 (National Diploma), but carried on the IT national Diploma i wanted to ensure i would still have atleas 3 a levels equivalent.
BTEC Level 3 Diploma, IT = 2 A levels
BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma, Applied Science = 1 A level
thus you have equivalent to 3 A levels and enough to get into university
