    My friend is currently doing BTEC national extended diploma in Business (equivalent to three A-levels), and he's worrying about University. He would like to do Business management. However, I looked up entry requirements for this course at various Universities and it says that they also require two A- levels along with the BTEC qualification (A* and A in the two A-levels). Is it crucial to have these two A-levels along with The BTEC qualifictaion? Or is the BTEC qualification enough on its own? Any other information will be given upon request. Any help is very much appreciated, Thank you

    The posters above have you covered, but many universities accept BTEC Extended Diplomas. We ask for DDD for our Business & Management course.
