    I wanted to ask whether Universities, Bristol University to be specific would take into account 3 A-Levels and a BTEC equivalent to 3 A-Levels as I am doing them both, and I have finished the BTEC with 3 Passes which equal up to 120 UCAS Points (One Grade A at A-Level). Would Bristol or any Russell Group University take the BTEC into account for a Law Degree.

    Hello,
    I cannot speak on behalf of the university, however :
    Is your BTEC related to law ?
    Have you checked the entry requirements for a law course ?
    Have you contacted the university to check ?

    As for other Russell Groups, I'm almost certain they wont accept you with PassPassPass in a extended diploma for law as this is "equivalent" to CCC at A-Level, which is generally below their entry requirements. Its worth checking ucas, looking around univeristy websites for entry requirements and contacting them directly to see whether it would be possible.

    All the best,

    I think either I have written the statement wrong. I am currently studying A Levels and I am in my second year of Sixth Form. I am studying A2 Economics, Media Studies and History. On top of that, this year (AS) I have completed my AS exams for those subjects as well as a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in I.T and achieved PassPassPass. This is equivalent to One A grade at A level. On top of that I have my other A2 subjects which I still need to finish. My question was whether Universities would consider that A and take it into account as one of the offered grades and If I achieve a predicted of ABB would this be enough to calculate to AAA that they require. Please ask me to clarify if this is still confusing. Thank-You.
