    I can get into target universities like Warwick for subjects like computer science with a level 3 Btec extended diploma (alongside maths a level). I just wanted to know would banks look down upon me for doing a btec when it comes to spring weeks and applying for internships? Also is there anyone who has got into IB with a btec?
    I'm a perfectly able student, I just think this route prepares me for uni better.

    My friend managed to get SWs at Barclays and Nomura with a BTEC. I don't think they care that much as long as you meet the UCAS point requirements (300-360).
