Anyone did a BTEC and went to uni? Watch
I’m not sure what to do after GCSEs still unsure what course to pick next year
I know I want to do psychology at uni but would universities accept BTEC?
Yes,it is definitely possible.
I'm studying children's nursing and completed my btec in 2015 with triple distinction star.
Well I wanted to stop drawing and painting and use that time instead to study and I had the GCSE Maths to expect the physics tests. I barely passed physics and later completed all the years.
Having the BTEC helped (at the time?) because the education sector was dominated with students who did A Levels and I knew doing a BTEC with the practical work offered something they didn't have and it helped me fit in but it is a two way street, I study like they did and filing essays and sit exams to pass modules.
My drawing ability helped to draw illustrations for my designs and to even posters during my later years for my later projects, which was beneficial because many think the work is to be in the library. Also not shying away from the workshop. There were students who did A levels and I never saw in the workshop because they were shy and there were more females there (knowing them because they really care about what they paid for then the guys). BTEC helped me quickly fit in there and it helpped me build the projects better then the others I knew. Always feel like doing over-time there. For other BTEC courses, I know they would help because we did a lot of CAD work on computers, so I know the other BTEC would find something in their field to use in the field they are studying during their degree studies.
