I wasn't full focused in year 12 and didn't enjoy my mathematics course, so I decided to drop the A2 modules and retake AS in year 13. I'm also doing a diploma in business (double business BTEC) which I'm likely to get a D*D.

I'm wondering if I can still find good enough universities to study management with marketing even though I have a double BTEC and an AS in maths.

Depends. See what they have in clearing. You have 120 points, which will get you into a decent ex poly.

You might get on with a foundation uear or cheaper would be to take a gap and finish your A level off.

Those would be solid grades it's a shame you won't have the full A level or you could've gone to an excellent university.

As someone else said, it could be worth considering a foundation year - at a good uni rather than settling for one you could get into based on Ucas points.

(some give offers based on 3 A levels at lower grades but it's worth contacting them and letting them know your situation, also if you're able to target grades of D*D* + A and see what they say)

Hope this helps

why not go back to college complete your Maths a level and possibly a couple of others at as level or redioing year 12 maths together with year 13 to get a better grade. This would widen your options greatly and would be cheaper than a foundation course

Look for unis that rest their entry qualifications on points rather than grades - for example H*rtfordshire want "96-112 UCAS points from qualifications which include a minimum of two 4 unit qualifications (e.g. A Levels), one 8 unit qualification (e.g. Pearson BTEC Diploma) or one 12 unit qualification (e.g. Pearson BTEC Extended Diploma)." for marketing or managing (from the website) - If you start with finding unis with joint programs where you could do managing and marketing then look into the ones that don't care if it's a BTEC or A/AS level.

Thanks very much for the help, its definitely an option for me, I have yet to even make a UCAS account so not sure I'll get in this year. Would it then be worth taking a gap year and trying to complete this AS level?

Do you think I'm likely to be able to barter an offer from Coventry university with these grades? They typically offer BBB-ABB :/
