    I've just completed AS at sixth form. didn't do too well, CCDE. this however is 130 ucas points. I have to leaves sixth form as They are not allowing me to continue. I am going to start a BTEC 90 credit diploma in business for one year which if I get D*D* is equivalent to 340 ucas points altogether with my AS results.

    I am wondering if this is enough to be accepted into university? do universities accept students doing one year of AS and one year of BTEC? I want to study business management at university and I am 17 years old.

    thank you

    I completed 3 Diploma's , Level 1 Travel & Tourism , Level 2 , Aviation & Level 3 , Business Studies.

    Got me 280 UCAS Points , Got 5 offers and accepted one which I now rejected , as working and earning my own money £24,000 a year is more important to me.

    But yes you'll get in (And i don't even have a Maths GCSE) Lol.
