Will having 2 A levels and 2 Btecs be good in order to get into university?
I don't really want to drop my 2 BTECs as they are to do with the course I want to do in the future. However I'm not sure if it will be okay to go to Uni with 2 A levels.
I am taking:
Computer Science Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma
Engineering Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma
Business Studies Level 3 A level
Applied Science Level 3 A level

With this i realised i will not be able to drop business which i was planning on doing.

what are you looking to do at uni?

yes thats more than enough to get in, you are doing the equiv. of 4 A levels, you could drop one and take the 3 if you wanted to

I am hoping to do artificial intelligence or software engineering at the moment. And also because i thought that it might look bad to do just 1 full a level..? With 2 btecs

Wont make any difference

Computing and Engineering BTECs are really good, however Maths would be a better choice than Applied Science

Im in the second year of my Computer Science degree at a top 20 uni and I did an Extended (worth 3 A levels) Computing BTEC, at my uni if you want to do Software Engineering, Computer Science or Artificial Intelligence you would need to get Distinction, Distinction in your 2 BTECs and a grade B in Maths or Physics and i think this is similar for other mid-high ranked universities, however having the combination of Computing, Engineering and Applied Science might get you an offer as they are all STEM subjects, you would have to enquire though as some (mainly top 10 unis) strictly require Maths

Also Computing and Engineering are much more relevant than Business, I think youll be fine, have a think about taking Maths or Physics though, I would say instead of Business (preferably) and/or Applied Science.

Hope this helps, feel free to ask anything else
