So i'm doing 1 A level which is ICT and a BTEC business (National diploma) which im told is worth 2 a levels. So this is worth 3 a levels overall so i've got it a bit easy for ICT as it is the only subject i have to revise for. I got my results for ICT yesterday and got an A and for BTEC business im predicted D* D* and average GCSE's (Mostly C's and B's) i'm now going into my second year. Because of this, what are my chances in getting into a good university because if they see im only doing two subjects they could think its not good enough? If this is true, what are my options? perhaps an extra AS level?

Well I'm doing a btec level 3 extended diploma atm which is equivalent to 3 a levels, and I can get into any Russell group university (I think). So asking as u are woking towards the equivalent of 3 a levels u should will be safe. Although don't expect to get into imperial college or oxbridge etc with a btec, they say on there website they don't bat an eyelid to btec students.
