Applying with AS levels and Apprenticeship watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi , So I'm currently 18 and an apprentice electrical maintenance engineer. Im working and studying a BTEC level 3 in electrical and electronic engineering. Before my apprenticeship I did As levels in: Applied IT, Business, Physics , and Computer science, with grades ABCD. Basically I'm looking to apply for computer science/software engineering at university with my BTEC (predicted distinctions)
    however I'm wondering weather or not to mention AS levels as I got a D in computer science. At the time I was immature , however since then i've developed a massive interest in it and have been learning coding at home with books and courses. I've matured a lot over the last year or two and feel passionate about it even though I wasn't interested then but don't want to put it on my application and have it come across as though I was no good at the subject I'm applying for. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks a lot.
