    Due to my secondary school cancelling their sixth form courses i had to got to a college last minute. I had planned to do three A-levels; Maths, Physics and Graphics. But due to there being no spaces left i had to do a BTEC Diploma with EPQ as well as A-level maths.
    But looking around over summer i have founded that uni's are asking for two A-levels with a Diploma.
    If anyone has had a similar problem or has got into uni anyway, please help. thanks.

    So that will be equivalent to two a levels and you'll carry on maths to a level i presume? in which case you'll be fine
