I take A level photography, IT and BTEC level 3 national extended certificate Law which is equivalent to an A level. I’m predicted to get an A* in photography, Distinction in IT and Distinction in Law. Will I be able to apply for law in oxbridge?

No. The BTECs will not be accepted as equivalent to A-level.

You can apply to Oxford OR Cambridge. Not both.

Oxford allows you to take any subject combination, but says it is helpful if your subjects are academic. Oxford uses the LNAT, which is a very good illustration of academic ability to study law. Even though you have not particularly academic subjects, that could be overcome by exemplary performance in the LNAT and perhaps interview.

But basically, no. You don't stand a chance. BTEC is quite a bit easier than A-Level and you don't even have the top marks predicted (D*).

I heard Cambridge doesn’t really care about your GCSEs?

I’m confused. Aren’t BTEC Level 3 National extended certificated equivalent to one A level?

They are, in theory. Unfortunately they are not treated equally. Neither Oxford or Cambridge recognise BTECs for law so essentially you're applying with a single A-level in an unrelated subject.
