    At the moment I'm currently studying Double Business as a BTEC in Sixth Form and the title of the course is "Business Studies Level 3 BTEC Nationals Diploma
    Double Award". I've been looking online and it says that most Universities only accept Level 3 Extended Diplomas and I'm slightly worried as I really want to study Business at University level. As well as studying Business I am studying Media as we have to take at least 3 A Levels. If anyone has any information telling me if I still have hope or what, it'd be appreciated. Thanks =]

    Hey there, OP I'm doing exactly the same course as you (Double Business Studies BTEC) except I do A level history too and I'm applying this year for unis..
    To answer your question, no - there isn't anything for you to worry about. They only put the Extended Diploma on their entry requirements because unlike you and me, people don't do other A levels and so this may vary. Usually the offer when you are doing double's is the same as the extended diploma, minus the third unit. That is substituted for your other qualification, your A level in Media which in this case applies to whatever third grade they ask for in their entry requirements for A levels.

    Hoped that has helped you and has eased any worries off your mind
