I'm currently about to finish the first year of my BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT, and I'm looking into doing a BSc in Computer Science. The website specifies an entry requirement of DDD for BTEC and hopefully, I should be getting D*D*D* at the end of my second year but there is a possibility this could slip down down to D*D*D, as I did miss some deadlines.
I currently have a C, narrowly missing a B, in GCSE Maths but I will be retaking it in 2017 to try and get at least a 7 or 8 (they're the reformed ones) in order to satisfy that requirement. I also have a C in an EPQ I did in secondary school, but I'm not sure what type of leverage it would have.
With these grades, is there a realistic chance of receiving an offer? What type of BTEC grades do people usually and actually get in with?
