    So I've noticed there are a lot of internship opportunities between A-levels and university so I'm considering having a gap year, applying for some and hopefully getting one that I enjoy, will be beneficial on my CV and will also earn me money so I'm not broke at uni. The problem is, every one that looks really appealing to me (computing, financing etc.) Require straight As pretty much. However my subjects are Maths and two BTECs. I expect to finish the year with two distinction * and an A or potentially a B in maths. Is it even worth applying for these internships. They say they don't require experience, just good personality and the grades.

    i'd apply any way as most people will accept a BTEC as an equivalent to an ALevel so as long as you do have the equivalent of A's it should be fine =)

    At my place of work, We will not interview, let alone hire those who hold BTEC's as we view those as generally brainless persons.
