    I have very little knowledge about btecs and how they work. I'm 16 years old, have completed my gcses and I am awaiting my results. I want to go to university. But I want to take BTECS. I wish to do a Level 2 Btec first this September and then a level 3 Btec the following (2 yrs just like a levels). Is this a thing? Would I be able to do that?

    I don't understand why you want to do BTEC level 2 if you could do BTEC Level 3 from this September.

    So basically BTEC Level 3 is equivalent to 3 A Level's and BTEC Level 2 is equivalent to 4 GCSE's.

    The first year of BTEC Level 3 consists of 9 units and will give you BTEC 90 Credit diploma. In your second year you would do additional 9 units so by the end of the second year you would get BTEC Extended Diploma

    If you do well in the BTEC course then you could definitely get into decent university (Top 30) it depends what you want to study at university.

    I have just finished my first year in IT and ended up getting D*D* (highest grade)

    Thank you for the reply. I am doing a level 2 Btec as it requires 4D's rather than 5C's.
