    I'm doing two btec subsidiaries in sport and business, while studying politics and doing an EPQ ( first year).

    If I get a bad grade in politics, for e.g. a D. But I get two D* in my btec's and an A in the EPQ. would it still be possible to study international development at top uni's such as:


    University of Leeds
    University of Sussex
    University of East Anglia
    University of Essex
    University of Reading
    SOAS University of London
    Kings College London


    p.s. all these uni's have this course

    Hiya:hi: Sorry that nobody has got back to you on this.

    Some of these universities may not consider BTECs as equivalent to A Levels and this may affect your chances of offers from them (others won't).:sadnod:

    The offer they give you will be for your given qualifications and you will be expected* to achieve that to get into your degree.

    Or you may receive an unconditional whereby the grades you achieve are irrelevant provided that you still complete the course.

    *normally if you miss your offer by one or two grades your university will still provide you with a "near miss" place
