    Hi everyone

    I was wondering if anyone could help me. Im currently on year one of my course CACHE Level 3 Child Care and Education (Early Years Educator) and I'll be going to university in September 2017.
    I'd really like to do a degree in psychology at uni however I've noticed that a lot of universities do not mention CACHE extended diplomas on their entry requirements (it's the equivalent to 3 A-levels). Most universities only seem to specify what grades at A-level they require for their psychology courses - does this mean they only accept A-levels or would they be likely to accept my CACHE extended diploma?
    If anyone has any advice on the matter please do get back to me!

    Contact admissions directly for each uni as they will all have different views on it, and they might not all see it as directly equivalent (from a quick peek on ucas, some say they only accept it if you have other level 3 qualifications alongside it).
