Hi, I'm 22 years old looking to go back to university after dropping out 3 years ago. I previously studied computer science, but found it boring. I have a mental illness and a sleep disorder which also played a role in my decision to leave.

I’m looking to study philosophy at KCL. The reason KCL appeals to me is because they teach Indian philosophy which not many universities offer. However, I have average GCSEs and a DDM in BTEC information technology which I feel will render my application useless.

The BTEC entry requirements for BA Hons Philosophy at KCL are :
BTEC/CTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma with DDM and two A levels at AA
OR
BTEC/CTEC Level 3 Diploma with DM and two A levels at AA
OR
BTEC Subsidiary Diploma/Extended Certificate or CTEC Introductory Diploma/Extended Certificate with D and two A levels at AA

Clearly you do not meet the entry requirements, and therefore your application would be rejected.
