Hi hoping its ok to post/as this here.
I've yet to start college and I was going to go for a BTEC in IT (It's just called "Information Technology (Computing) - Level 3" on the college site) and is an extended diploma (the three A level equivalent) and also possibly an A level in Maths if I can but i'm not too sure about the practicality of doing that as well.
I've been looking at the Software Engineering and Computer Science degrees (both the BSc and BEng ones, dunno if that makes a difference) and it just said they ideally want AAA
I had a look at qualification requirements for students from England and they've said BTEC's aren't accepted apart from for some art degrees, is this absolutely true?
Would it not be worth it to bother applying? What if I were to do really well on my BTEC and get a result that's either equivalent or technically over AAA, like DDD - D*D*D*? (I assumed DDD would be AAA based off the UCAS tariff calculator, I know they might not actually use UCAS tariffs.)
Thanks in advance.
But did you bother to watch?
