    Hey guys. So I'm bad after my panic of last year but I am so worried. I decided to do a BTEC 90 Credit diploma, and am doing well! So far I have 2 distinctions and 1 merit for my units. But I am still worried. Why?
    Because of my previous A levels. I want to go to university this year and HAVE an offer. But they want 104 points from at least 2 A levels or equivalent.
    My main concern is that I'll only be able to have 74ish with a MM or 84 with a DM (which I may get?) In total with my best a level. I'll pop my grades below:

    A Levels: E and D
    BTEC 90 C 1 year: MM or DM
    AS levels: C and E

    Would I still be accepted? I've got a conditional offer but I really am worried. My personal tutor said not to worry but I really am. If I add both my a levels with the btec I'll have 90-100 and with my a level it's 112. It's mainly the "from 2 a levels or equivalent." That's worrying me

    If the offer conditions you have received aren’t achievable you need to talk to the university concerned and explain that and ask if they can change the offer conditions. If they cannot change the conditions then you need to ask them whether they normally accept applicants for that course who miss the offer conditions and if so how they prioritise applicants.
