    It depends what sort of BTEC National it is. Extended diploma is equivalent to 3 A levels, but a diploma is worth 2 and a subsidiary diploma is worth 1. Work out which ne you are doing or ask the teacher.

    AS level is only worth 0.5 A levels.

    It will depend on the entry requirements for the CS course. Normally they require 3 A levels or equivalent.


    You need to id what you have and then compare it with what they ask for.

    The answer is maybe. Lower unis may accept lower amounts of qualifications. It depends what you have (grades) you need to check and what they want you need to check that as well. If people have 3 A levels and you have 2.5 then you are at a bit of a disadvantage. Look into ways to getting the extra.

    Unfortunately we do not consider UCAS points from AS Levels or the BTEC Certificate.

    We can only consider the BTEC in IT if it is a National Diploma or National Extended Diploma at Grade D*D or DMM.

    Alternatively we can consider UCAS points from the BTEC Extended Certificate, providing you are taking this alongside two A Levels one of which must be in IT, Computing, Maths or Science.

    If you are unsure as to which BTEC you are taking I would recommend contacting your college to check or you can call us on 0161 247 6969.

    I hope this helps
