    so im studying level 3 Btec nationals 180 credit diploma. I have found courses within Sheffield and leeds universities, biomedical and radiography. but I need advice, I know these uni's are of high stature, they say they will accept btecs but what are my chances of actually getting a placement?, I know they will take an A level student over me.

    Hi EmilyMouse,

    You've posted this in the veterinary medicine forum, and the people here aren't likely to be the best ones to answer your question for you.

    I'll move this to 'Medical and Healthcare Professions' so that you can get a response sooner.

    You can check how many UCAS points you will gain from this unit and compare against university requirements.

    http://www.universityfinder.org.uk/u...alculator.html

    Note that the number of UCAS points will vary from course to course.

    Edit/
    I don't believe you will be ignored just because you are doing BTECs. It's not like A levels are better. They are different in their own way.

    Thank you for your advice, I have checked that I would have the right amount of ucas points, and I have more than enough due to an additional course I did a year ago. And I'm predicted D*D*D*, I just seem to be brainwashed that uni's are completely against Btecs

    Most people from my old BTEC class got 4/5 offer, and these included very good universities (inc. Southampton, Kings, Bath, Surrey, Royal Holloway, Mancheste) similar in reputation to the ones you are applying to

    Oh wow that's a good rate, thanks for letting me know, I have been reading around a lot of forums and I've kinda got into the habit of thinking that btecs are the spawn of satan 😂X
