Hiyaaa

When I applied for sixth form, I chose 3 A level courses (biology, psychology, art) and one BTEC (health and social care)

I've just started sixth form this week, and recently found out that A level art doesn't exist anymore (or at least in my school) and it's a BTEC course now. So I'm doing 2 A levels and 2 BTEC .-.
I wanted to go to Uni and study either psychology or biology and get a job as a teacher. Though my mum told me (I also looked up on the internet) that you need at least 3 A levels to get into University. Since I applied for A level art, would they still accept it even though it's BTEC? Like, if I get a really good result? Or will I have to change one of the courses?

My GCSE results were A*AAAAABBC if that helps at all xD

Thankies~ ^-^

I took a BTEC worth three A-levels and got into a Russell Group uni to do Law... I don't think it matters so much anymore. Just find the right uni.

95% of unis accept BTEC

This person got into Oxford for Experimental Psychology with Health & Social Care BTEC and no A levels: https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...ty-application

You'll be fine.
