    I am really confused as there are two options.
    1) LEVEL 3 BTEC EXTENDED CERTIFICATE IN APPLIED SCIENCE counts as 1 a level
    2) BTEC NATIONAL EXTENDED DIPLOMA IN APPLIED SCIENC counts as 3 a levels

    As an AS student which should I pick considering I can't do science A levels due to my GCSE grades. I can also do one A level with these that are not science related, or maths.

    Look at the entry requirements for the unis and subjects you might be interested in, and see if they have a preference. Also look at the content for each qualification - you say you got low GCSE grades, so you don't want to pick a subject that you know you'll do badly in.

    You should do the extended diploma because you cant do much with 1 a level.
