    Hi

    I am studying IT LEVEL 3 BTEC and i got accepted in bu for software engineering and the entry requirements are DMM


    my teacher is being evil and saying i only completed 6 units last year when i completed 9

    and i am completing 9 distinctions this year so that means my teacher is saying im only doing an IT diploma which is (DM)

    what does this mean?

    It means that instead of the Extended Dip(3 A levels) which requires 18 units you will be getting the Diploma(2 A levels) which only requires 12 units

    DMM = ACC
    DM = AC

    You would need to take another BTEC Subsidiary(1 A level) or just another straight A level at grade Merit/C to meet your offer, also this needs to be accepted by the uni too

    Also if you got 10 distinctions and 2 merits for the 12 units to make up the diploma you would have D*D* not DM and in terms of UCAS points D*D* = 280 and DMM = 280 so there is a chance they could accept you

    Level 2 qualifications do not hold UCAS points at all so im not sure where you heard that?

    If youre being entered for the Diploma (worth 2 A levels) then they will use your 12 best units so really you only have to do 12 to get the qualification.

    On that basis if you had 9 distinctions and 3 passes you would have DD = 240 UCAS points
