    my son is in year 13 and oing a level photography and english lit and having failed psychology as he has to do a btec level 3 in public services over 1 year to make up ucas points. how many points would this give him potentially as pubic services doesn't seem to be on the ucas points tariff

    It depends on what type of BTEC it is and what grade he gets

    For example:

    BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma(60 credits), Grade D* = 140 UCAS points

    BTEC Level 3 Certificate(30 credits), Grade Merit = 40 UCAS points

    For my BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma i got D*D*D* which is 420 UCAS points and the equivalent of 3 A* grade A levels

    If you find out what type of BTEC it is or how many credits it is i will be able to tell you what grades are worth what in terms of UCAS points and A level equivalency
