    Hi, I really really want to study law at uni. I have chosen the universities I want to study at,, the only problem now is getting my confidence up. I'm worried that because I'm a BTEC student I will not do as well as my a level counterparts. I'm currently in year 13 at sixth form, studying for a BTEC diploma in business (worth 2 a levels) and Btec subsidiary in applied law. I managed to get distinction stars for both subjects but I'm still worried the jump from BTEC to degree will be very steep. I am willing to work hard at uni and make sure I do required reading etc. But I'm worried it just won't be enough and I'm not smart enough.
    I am aware some universities will look down at BTEC qualifications and this is reflected in my 5 UCAS choices.
    University of Birmingham
    Brunel university London
    Northumbria university
    City university
    West of England

    Are there any current law students who have studied btec level 3 at sixth form?? Please give me some advice!!

    You're in the correct mindset and shouldn't be worried. If you hit the ground running and do the reading that is required you will be fine!
    I did a level 3 BTEC in public service... that is it and I was fine!
    Don't panic.
