    I'm doing level 3 extended diploma of science btec

    I've got GCSEs
    The main ones:

    English C
    Maths B
    Science triple BBB
    And then other subjects

    I want to do psychology in uni
    If not that what else is available for me to do
    And can I do psychology

    I'm expecting at least DDM?

    You should check the UCAS website, I find that very useful in finding courses and whether they accept BTEC. Most courses that I've seen required about DMM for first-year entry, or MMP for foundation year entry. Some courses at higher ranked universities offer foundation years for people who studied the wrong subjects/BTECs, which often have high entry requirements (think at least DDM).

    I expect that universities who have more biology-based psychology courses will be more open to the Applied Science BTEC than courses with a more humanities approach.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
