    I have received a lot of conflicting response to this question so I prefer someone who is experiencing/currently experiencing this.
    Next year i will be looking to apply to a top 40 preferably top 20 uni and at the moment I am doing a BTEC level 3 extended diploma in ICT alongside 2 A levels ( Maths and History)

    A lot of unis accept just BTECs but what would the offers be fof 2 A levels and a BTEC from top unis be e.g. Nottingham or Sheffield

    Also how likely would I be offered a place

    Usually the offer would be the equivalent to a level so Distinction AA but check with each university you are interested in to be sure.
