    Note that some top universities require an additional qualification such as an A-level in addition to a BTEC for some courses, but that's pretty rare.

    Someone who went to my college managed to get C's and a B at GCSE and BTEC D* in IT and Bussiness. He is not studying computing of some sort in Bristol. I think he may have self-taught mathematics. But Bristol is pretty good.

    unless you are apply for top university such as oxford or Cambridge then it doesn't really matter. I am doing BTEC IT and have been accepted into Liverpool hope and Liverpool john moors with this, I also know the university of Liverpool accepts BTECs, if you look on the uni's websites it should say the a level entry requirements and btec requirements.

    Hi hannah711

    Most universities will accept anything that is listed as holding UCAS points on the UCAS tariff points calculator. As long as these are equivalent to at least 2/3 A-levels and meet the university entry requirements you should be fine.

    Have a little look on the UCAS tariff points calculator and see how many UCAS tariff points you have and see if you hold enough to match the entry requirements of the course that you are interested in. For example applicants to our courses would need to meet the requirement of 112-120 UCAS points.

    I hope this helps with the logistics of entry requirements but if you have any other questions or concerns please don't hesitate to give us a shout.
