There are so many and I don't know what type I'm looking for in the UCAS points calculator. I'm talking about the ones that people do over 2 years, instead of an A level, like in Hospitality or Sport or Public Services, and then some universities will accept e.g. a DDM instead of BBC for them. What are they specifically called? Thanks.

Ahhh no I didn't explain it right then, I meant you take one of these BTECs instead of 1 A-level

Subsidiary Diploma? it's 60 credits and equivalent to 1 a level, but it's only done after doing a Certificate the year before which is similar to an AS - 30 credits. I do two of these and 1 A level in year 13 rn.

An Extended diploma is the one that's 90 credits, and is equivalent to 3 a levels. If your studying this it's probably the only thing your studying in sixthform/college since it's a lot of work in one subject.

If this doesn't help then here ya go =
