Economics courses which accept BTEC Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have completed the first year of a BTEC Level 3 90 Credit IT course, achieving D*D* and I am targeted D*D*D for the second year (BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma). Towards the end of the first year, I started doing some research into economics and the various career paths that stem from it as well as talking to someone who works in the industry and I have now concluded that I would like to have an economics career (investment banking, hedge fund, etc).Here's the issue: Unfortunately the top economics universities either A) Don't accept BTECs for entry at all or B) Only accept BTECs with 1 or 2 A Levels (depending on the university). With hindsight, I realise now that studying a BTEC was a mistake, and that I should have chosen A Levels instead. What are my options? Do I really have to spend an extra couple of years studying A Levels, or could I do something else? I would obviously prefer to apply for university this year, but if that isn't possible then there isn't much else I can do. Any advice appreciated!
Is GoT overrated?
