    Heyy.
    I have a gcse pass in Maths and English. I did not do any gcse retakes.
    But I failed most, nearly all of the other subjects.
    I have level 2 btec which is equivalent to 5 GCSEs.
    Will unis accept level 2 gcse equivalent.
    Please remember I have passed maths and English which are most vital.
    Thanks.
    ***live in b'ham, if anyone with level 2 got into uni in bham please let me know.

    You need to look at the entrance requirements of the uni concerned and if it doesnt say so, then make an informal enquiry to admissions to check that the level 2 BTEC is acceptable instead of GCSEs. In most cases they accept level 3 BTEC, so I think you would be ok with level 2, but always check to be sure. As you say the important GCSEs are Englosh and Maths.
