    I think this is wrong.

    DDD=AAA
    MMM=BBB
    CCC=CCC

    This is what I was told.
    DDD = AAA

    But

    M = C and P = E

    Trust me thats 100% correct, id put my life on it

    A merit is only equal to a B in Level 2 BTECs for level 3 merits are equal to a C grade and a pass is an E grade

    You cant get BTEC grades directly equivalent to B and D grades

    Look at it like this:
    C at A level = 80 ucas points
    MMM in BTEC = 240 UCAS points
    CCC=3 x 80 = 240

    If a merit grade = B then you would be able to get exactly 300 UCAS points from a BTEC Extended Dip which is impossible as no BTEC grade profile is worth exatly 300 points

    If it was a teacher who told you this then you should probably correct them

    Haha yeah great advice😊, I just need some direction lol, er you can replace a choice by going onto track and clicking view on a uni you haven't yet heard from, however it has to be less than one week since you applied
    Have you heard from Greenwich yet? On why your application was unsuccessful?
