I'm in year 11 now and I have a place in a normal 6th form and and a rugby academy, I just need to accept my place in either of them on results day. I know I could take my place in college, get my 3 a levels and then take whatever course in uni but I really want to see how far I can get with my rugby so that's what I'd rather do. The problem is that once I finish in the academy ill only have a level 3 btec in sport (which is the equivalent of 3 a levels but it's only sport and nothing else) unless they decide to keep me as a professional player. what sort of courses could I be looking at if I do only come out of it with this btec because a lot of unis want things like maths and biology?

A BTEC Level 3 is equivalent to 3 A Levels I believe (someone correct me if I am mistaken). If you'd like to study a sports related course then I'd recommend to start looking at Loughborough, the best in the country for sports related courses (that's if you want to study a sports related subject).

Don't worry, you'll definitely get into university with that qualification.

Loughborough say they take level 3 btecs if the student also has an additional a level but I don't know if I can do that

Have you considered open university before? I don't know much about it but you don't need a levels.

There are plenty of universities that take BTECs, a lot of it is based on UCAS points.

3 A Levels = 1 Level 3 BTEC

Good luck!

Maybe consider another uni?

You could always have a look online at centres in your local area and see if there is anything.

If you really need to study an a level, maybe consider sitting them privately?
