Level 3 for UCAS points and then you can add up to the equivalent of 3 x A levels worth of qualification.

If its btec then a subsid diploma or extended cert - 1 A level.
A diploma is 2 A levels
The extended diploma is equivalent to 3 A levels.

All of those are level 3.
This is why you need to know exactly which qualification you are doing over 2 years.

Okay thanks bud. I think im doing just the diploma. Im going to add a picture of my current level 1 certificate. It doesnt say anything about btec or extended. Also if its equivalent to 2 a levels which a levels would it be? Would level 3 be AA ?

Nope it is level 1 which is below a GCSE.
It is also vocational which means it wouldnt count towards uni entry as its more work based skills rather than reading books academic knowledge.

You are level 1

A levels and qualifications for uni entry are level 3

Uni degrees are level 4--6
