    I have a half a btech extended diploma science, two Alevels English and art, I had to take the btech in replacement of Alevel history which I previously failed. I am 18 and I can't go to a good uni because of this. Next year after A2 I want to take an extra Alevel, that being chemistry or biology as I want to get into nutrition. Is it possible to do nutrition at a uni with half a btech and an a level in biology or chemistry? Help

    You need to check the entrance requirements for the uni you are applying to as they all have different policies.

    There is also overlap between your A level and btec. best contact them now and they can tell you what they will consider acceptable.

    Examples to show you how they differ.
