    Can you actually get into University with just a BTEC Level 3 extended Diploma in IT. And I mean a good university (UK Top 20). Have any of you done it or do you know someone that has?

    Also sorry for posting this in the A Level Forums, I'm on my phone and I can't find the Btec Forum Link.

    Depends on how many UCAS points it gives you and the course requirements for that University. "___ UCAS points from as least 2 A levels" for example is a type of requirement that top Universities may want . Personally I did 2 A levels and a btec...and it was the btec that saved me and got me in to my university.

    But really it depends on the Uni's preference...get researching
