    Previously in my life i wished to join the military so i have always gone toward qualifications that may help me within that route. however recently i have decided to go to university and study something i believe i would enjoy and be good at. with only 240 UCAS points in BTEC diploma public services i have found that there arent any universities that would accept me for a business course. is there any advice you could give me about where i can look? without having to going back to college.

    Foundation year at Uni?
    I'm not sure your BTEC is going to cut it since its got very little to do with the course.
    Is it at all possible to enter yourself privately for the business a-level exams, then maybe you would have a better chance and grasp of the subject?

    hey, most universities have loads of applications to business, that's why the entry criteria are so high, it's not actually hard. A foundation year isn't a bad idea tho, and you don't always have to do a foundation year in the same subject. I know someone who did the social science foundation year at keele uni and said she was better prepared in first year studying business there than the other students.
