Not really, a level 3 BTEC diploma is usually done alone and it's useless to just have one A Level.

If you already have one, you must have finished sixth form/college correct? What are your plans? A btec would be worth more than just the one a level but I dont know the chances of you being able to do so.

Ok. But why do you want to do a btec as well? What do you hope to use the btec qualification for?

If you have A level Business, you won't be able to do a BTEC in Business. It might get you extra UCAS points, but it will be in two overlapping subjects which will be no good for University.
You could ask the college if they will allow you to do a BTEC in another subject (Law and / or IT are good options to go alongside Business).

90 Credits is equal to One and half A levels. If you have an A level already (depends on the grade), you might be able to get sufficient UCAS points, but you probably need to get a Distinction Star in the BTEC. Check some Uni websites and see what they require for entry. Then see if that is achievable with the options you have.

Although if you want to study Law at Uni, an Applied law BTEC is more applicable than IT.

You don’t get extra tariff points from additional qualifications in the same subject. Only one qualification in each subject attracts tariff points.

If you want to go to a specific university/course and don’t currently have the required grades/qualifications then talk to that university to ask their advice on what you should do to have the best application - don’t just pick qualifications willy nilly

Most btecs are worth exactly the same as one A level in tariff points. 90 credit and extended diploma courses are less common.

Ah ok. I've checked and Hertfordshire accept me with a 90 credit diploma and business Alevel so that's fine then.

Did you make it clear to them that you were taking the btec in the same subject as your A level?

I think I'd do the btec in IT which is what I told them and they said that is fine.
