I've moved your thread to the Law Forum

You will need to check the entry requirements at different universities.

The better universities will require you to sit an A-level or two on top of the BTEC. They will also expect a D or D* in the BTEC itself.

Some universities may nominally accept it (Oxford, LSE), but, in practice, are so competitive that the mere fact that you took one reflects badly on your perceived academic ability. That may, in turn, result in an early rejection. Hence why BTEC is often not acceptable on its own, as a qualification.

Honestly, it's best to take a look at the university admissions website. If you're still in doubt (for instance, if the website does not explicitly refer to BTECs), call the admissions office.

Although I wouldn't expect to get in the top 10 with just BTEC Business, you can still get into Durham if you have been doing A levels on top of BTEC. I applied this year with a BTEC for the law course to Birmingham, Reading, Kent, York and Exeter. I have already got offers from Birmingham, Kent, Reading and an interview from York. Still waiting for the reply from Exeter. You just need to write a personal statement which shows that you have done your research on what the subject entails and try to explain how your skills and learning makes you suitable for the course.

How weird!!! I too have a BTEC and applied to York, Reading and Kent for Law!! Been offered an interview by York as well! If you don't mind me asking, how did you get an offer from Birmingham?? I presume you must have got D*D*D* in like business studies because they said I was unlikely to be offered a place with Aviation Operations.....😖

Yh I am doing business, but they don't just want D*D*D*, they want 18 distinctions, so it's still gonna be hard to get in. I hope you get offers from the rest of your choices.

Well other than the ones I've already stated, I applied to Sheffield and City, so hopefully I get offers from all of them. But UCAS is done till tomorrow with maintenance so I can't check yet 😖
