    Hello, im currently in a traineeship with the BBC (Very basic media course) and was with my current grades
    I have 3 level 2 grade in IT, Media and graphic design, but i feel like I am lacking to join a course especially with bad GCSE math and English, and if i was given a test on maths i feel i would fail, but i would love to goto uni to sudy coding or video/sound production.
    Please tell me what i need to join a decent course in Kent

    -Many thanks

    You would need to do an access course I think...

    Level 2 qualifications are the equivalent of a higher GCSE, and so your BTECs would need to be level 3. Could you do some more work to get a level 3?

    Not really possible, I either need a uni course or a job, this is the restrictions my parents have given me (except the current course which i'm doing, because they think it will be good as it has links to the bbc) but thanks anyways ಥ_ಥ

    You could get your maths and english gcse's privately and then go from there.
