Looking into going to university hopefully in a few years but I've applied for 6th form recently and on the university it says I needed BBC-BBD in A levels or a DDM in BTEC, is it any A level because I do not see anything saying you need a certain A level and can I do 1 BTEC and 2,A levels and still get in?

Yes, most universities will accept a combination of A-level and BTEC subjects. So long as you meet the UCAS points requirements and/or have the equivalent grades then you should be able to get a place. You could contact a university about any specific courses you are interested in to check that you meet the requirements. In general, most universities will accept any or the majority of subjects for a diploma/certificate worth 1 A-level and A-levels can get you into a whole range of degrees with them being more general.

At BTEC Level 3, D*=A*, D=A, M=C and P=E. It's difficult to directly compare the qualifications and some universities will ask for a higher grade in BTEC but these are what are roughly considered as equivalent grades. So for a BBC course, you should get in with BB and an M but it depends.

What course are you planning to do? Also, some unis will accept a certain number of UCAS points.
