Im unsure about what to list my Btec level 3 national diploma double award ICT as in my ucas application.
Neither Btec Diploma or Btec extended diploma(QCF) has it as an option however, GCE advanced subsidiary has it as an option. Since it counts as two subjects I dont know which option would be appropriate and Im not sure what the difference is between these options

There’s no such thing as a btec national diploma “double award”. Your teacher/college has not told you the exact name of the qualification that you’re studying. https://qualifications.pearson.com/e...logy-2016.html < these are the current IT btec national qualifications.

Find out the exact specification for the qualification you’re studying from your college.

What do you mean? I checked that link and it lists it as "Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Diploma (2017) in Information Technology". It is a thing, but not many people do it. My teacher said under a 100 do it nationwide and I have 4 people in my class.

It is the " Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Diploma (720) (First teaching Sept 2016)" qualification if you are doing what I am . It is not an option but you can just write it in as Information Technology. I haven't been able to speak to anyone also doing double IT, assuming its the same course what units have you done? Mine include Unit 4: Programming, Unit 9: Project Management and unit 12: technical support.

If OP is searching for “double award” and ICT then they will not find the correct qualification. Many students are told they’re taking a national diploma when they’re actually taking the foundation diploma or extended diploma. It’s important to check that the qualification entered onto ucas is the right one - if op is applying through their college then colleges have the option to limit available qualifications in apply to the qualifications that they offer. OP can’t find a qualification that is available on ucas - which implies that they’re either searching for the wrong description (“double award”) or that the qualification they’re taking isn’t what they’ve been told (and so isn’t available to them).

IT and ICT are not the same thing. Just like Double award A levels and a btec national diploma isn’t the same thing.

How are you helping the OP exactly?

If it isn’t available on Apply for you then you need to speak to your college.
