    I'm going to apply to UOB for Mechanical Engineering in 2017, and I'm currently studying a BTEC Extended Diploma Level 3 in Engineering.

    I'm predicted a Distinction* Distinction* Distinction*, and I have 7 Gcse's at C and Above Inc Eng & Maths

    UOB want GCSE Maths & Eng at Grade C, so as I just meet their Criteria, would I be at a disadvantage? And do they really care about GCSEs?

    I also meet their BTEC criteria (Subject to me passing an Maths aptitude test)

    So would I get in? Am I at a disadvantage because of my GCSEs?

    Also, anyone else taken the Maths Aptitude test? What is it about and is it on computer?

    Looking forward to your replies. Thanks

    Yeah mate you should be fine , since u do meet their minimum requirements as well as 5 additional GCSEs. It only maths and English they care about ( they need to be C or above) you should be fine. I was worried as I only have English maths maths at C but I spoke to other TSR users and I found out it's only English and maths that they care about !

    Also the UOB maths aptitude test is a paper based exam and 3/4 of the exam is mainly GCSE topics and the rest are a level maths topics. I haven't actually done the test yet, but I know two people that have done it and have successfully gotten on their course
