    Hi there.
    I hope to leave college with an Extended Level 3 in Tourism, with GCSE; Maths, English, Science Core and Mandarin.
    So thats only 4. I heard most unis would prefer 5+
    I do also have a BTEC Level 2 in Tourism. Will thst count towards my GCSES? I hear its equivalent to 2?



    It honestly depends on where you go or what course you apply for but a lot of universities only require a GCSE in English and Maths, sometimes Science.

    Your BTEC is indeed equivalent to two GCSEs, but you'd probably have to contact your preferred university admissions and ask about that.

    Or you can have a look at the entry requirements on your desired course/s at the university/ies you have in mind
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
