    Hello, my son is hoping to start New College, Swindon in September. He has just passed 10 Gcse's and wants to do A levels in Maths, Geography and BTEC Applied Science. He doesn't know which direction he wants to go down in University afterwards, but as his mum I am worried he may be penalised doing a BTEC, but this course would suit him better. Where could we also find degree options he could do assuming he passes these?

    What is your son interested in doing in the future? He can search for university degree options here: http://search.ucas.com/ and then click on whatever uni course he's interested in, go to the Entry Requirements section and look at what subject (and grades) they require and if they accept BTEC applied science.

    Thank you, Our first problem was that he didn't know what he wanted to study! We have since looked on the UCAS site and he has found a couple of courses that have really interested him. It was a very helpful site, Thanks.
