    95%+ of UK unis accept BTEC

    I did a Computing BTEC a gew years ago and got offers from everywhere that I applied and now am in my second year of an MSci Computer science degree at a top 20 uni.

    I know a bit about the Applied Science BTEC and popular degree choices include: Biomedical Science, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Nutrition/Dietetics, Radiography, Forensic Science, Biotechnology etc.

    I think the 'best' unis that you can get into are as follows:

    UCL- http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospectivestud...-sciences-bsc/
    Southampton - consider on individual basis - BSc Biochemistry
    York - http://www.york.ac.uk/biology/underg...ourse-applying
    Nottingham - http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/ugstudy/...uirements.aspx - Biotechnology, Nutrition or Phisiotherepy - DDD/DDM
    Surrey - http://www.surrey.ac.uk/subjects/bio...s-and-medicine
    Bath - http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/ug/prosp...-requirements/
    Lancaster - http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/und...#entrycriteria

    Thanks, just remember that yiu have a lot more options with BTEC than you probably realise, if you can get good grades you can easily get into a top uni like some of the ones i listed, good luck

    Yeah dont be put off by moving, its one of the best parts of uni if i am being honest! so much fun people I know who live at home really regret it as they miss out on so much, just make sure the course is right and the location is somewhere you'd be happy living for 3/4 years, thanks
