    Is it at all possible to take an extra unit (Along side the 18) within a BTEC Extended Diploma in IT? Or is the diploma only limited to 18 Units in total.

    Thanks to anyone who responds

    Don't see much point in doing an extra unit (assuming it's possible). Go spend time reading around the subject. Go get an MCP, CCENT or whatever.

    Thank you for your reply. I am currently on a BTEC Extended diploma (2nd year). The reason for doing an extra unit is that the University scholarship I wish for requires 18 Distinctions. I achieved 1 merit last year (with 8 distinctions) and looking if I can add an additional unit this year to make up for that. Thank you to anyone else who can help

    Ahh right. The last I heard you could do a 19th unit, and have it replace your lowest graded unit. Don't know if the reform changed that. But if you want the best advice then go talk to the course leader.

    The main issue will be asking for an additional units worth of assignments to be written, verified and delivered, especially at this point in the year.
    Which Uni is it that has requested 18 Distinctions, that sounds a tad extreme.

    Cardiff University require 18 distinctions for their £3000 scholarship
