So basically guy's I am studying a BTEC Level 3 course which is equivalent to 2 A-Levels. I've recently applied for a foundation course at Sheffield Hallam University. The course is 'Extended Degree Programme in Computing' I got a conditional offer and the subjects to me obtaining the mentioned below.
80 UCAS points including at least 32 points from one A Level
or equivalent BTEC Nationals one AS Level can be counted towards the points total
OR ALTERNATIVELY 64 UCAS points from three A Levels including at least 32 points from one A Level or equivalent BTEC Nationals not including AS Levels.
I could aim for 80 but I doubt I'd get that high, however I'll try my hardest to get there. How my easiest choice is 64 points but there's also another problem which is I don't know any AS & A-Level exam centres near and the only one has been closed because the application dates have been surpassed.
Question is will I still get in IF I get 64 points from my course which is worth 2 A-Levels?
What are the downsides?
