Sorry I was busy on another thread. You need to id the exact course and what qualification it is that you will get. Find out who the exam board is.

You can then verify whether its just a made up qualification or is actually recognised and official. It might be an NVQ, which you can do on the job.

If its University you want then official qualifications are what will be needed. BTECS and A levels or an Access course mostly.

Normally what I would do is select the unis I was interested in and look at their admission requirements for nursing courses. They will have a selection of qualifications they will accept including A levels , Btec and Access.

You then need to make sure you have one of these sets of qualifications as anything else will not be accepted. You can then decide whether the course you go on will be any good or not. You havent told us what the qualification is (full title) plus whoever issues it (exam board) and what level it is.

So you need to find out whether its just the certificate, extended cert, foundation diploma, diploma or extended diploma as they are worth different amounts and involve different amounts of work from 1-3 A levels equivalent.


The good thing is they are recognised qualification for nursing
, but you will need to ensure you have enough qualifications or you need to do more. i.e if you did the extended diploma that would be enough, but a btec on its own would only equal 1 A level so youd need to do additional.


So I just looked at Nursng for you and Leeds uni came up first it says

BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma (QCF): Distinction/Distinction/Distinction in: Health and Social Care (Health Sciences); Health and Social Care (Health Studies).
All BTEC modules must be listed on your UCAS form or else your application will be rejected.

Sheffield Hallam


2017 entry requirements

You must have some experience of delivering care in a professional or voluntary capacity, and a reference from a current or recent employer or educational institution.
Normally five GCSEs at grade C or grade 4 or above, including English language or literature, mathematics and a science (single or double) or equivalent*, plus one of the following
• 112 UCAS points with at least 48 points from two A levels or equivalent BTEC National qualifications. We do not accept AS levels.



Southampton

QualificationGradeGCSE
GCSE Maths and English Language (A*-C or 4-9) or IELTS 7.0 (with no component below a 7). GCSE Science (A*-C or 4-9) also required if not offered as a level 3 qualification.
Certain GCSE equivalent qualifications will be considered.


BTEC
BTEC Extended Diploma Health & Social Care (D*DD).
BTEC Diploma and BTEC Subsidiary Diploma will be considered when offered in combination with other relevant qualifications.

You do understand if you wish to do nursing and you are using BTEC (Health and Social Care then you will need the extended Diploma and you will need at least DMM grades plus 5 GCSE's to gain entry to most nursing degrees?

You will also need to get work experience plus do an interview. If you have that it will allow you to make a competitive application.

You dont appear to listen to what I tell you.

Ive shown you that Southbank require DDM in an extended BTEC Diploma. They dont put that on their website for no reason.

RING THEM UP AND TALK TO THEM YOURSELF FOR PEACE OF MIND.

You just need to talk to the people who control admissions and when you hear from them BTEC is ok you can stop worrying. DDM is what you need and that will require hard work plus your 5 GCSE's as well. Then you can ignore the other people or make your mind up f youd prefer A level.
