I’m currently studying a BTEC level 3 National Diploma for 3 years, a course for uni requires 112 Tarrif points although my course gives me 36 points for a pass, will I still be able to get into uni with this qualification? I will be 20 by the time I submit or could be worth waiting a year when i’m classed as a mature student.

So you need 112 points
But your course only gives you 36?

Is that correct?

Looks like a PP gives you 32 ucas points, and a D*D* gives you 112 ucas points.

Does the university course you want to do give a grade you need to achieve on your BTEC for them?

It says typical offers Tariff points: 112 and then at the bottom BTEC Diploma: No specific subjects required

Hi bk1111

The entry requirements will differ between institutions and different courses, but a level three BTEC will certainly get you somewhere. My son has just accepted an offer from UEA to study there and he has a BTEC. Have a research into courses you are interested in and look at the individual University websites as well. You may have a great personal statement which will help as well, I am a mature student and had no A Levels or similar qualifications but had lots of work and life experience! Certainly here at Hull, the admissions tutors are flexible with potential students who can show real interest in the subject.

Best of luck

Two years of Graphic Design and now he will study History with a foundation year because it is a different discipline. He got offers from other places too.

So for that one you will have to gain a DM final grade unless you have other qualifications that will give you UCAS marks also?

Is it an extended diploma?
What was your extra year for- a resit or did you change course? You

Well basically the first courses you were looking at you would need to have achieved a D*D* to get the points it requires, for the one with a foundation year it will need you to active a DM -this is assuming the information you have given is correct.
I don’t know what the extra year was for either so you may be best asking your course provider/tutor what qualifications you will and up with and then contacting the Uni to ask if they accept it.
