Hello guys, I was worried about applying for university, I am currently in year 13 doing BTEC Level 3 in Information Technology as Diploma which is equivalent to 2 A levels and a BTEC Level 3 in Business as extended certificate which is equivalent to 1 A level and might do Italian as A level, I think by the end I would get in IT: D*D and in Business: D* and in Italian an A*. I wanted to apply to a university for a computer science degree either in a Russel group or a in a top 100 ranking, I have called a few unis and they said I need an A level with the Diploma but I'm doing another single business. Can anyone please help me? when I called them I did not tell them that I would be doing Italian as A level. Any other courses I can do in a uni? thanks

Hey! I would double check their entry requirements again - if you are two BTEC's that equate to three A-levels then that may be suitable for some universities but not others. Give them a call again and let them know about your Italian A-level and see what they say - you may need to have a specific subject related A-level if your BTEC in Information Technology isn't suitable. Try and narrow down your search a bit before calling and chatting to them in-depth about what they need.

As long as you apply before the deadline you'll receive equal consideration - don't feel the need to rush it!

I know - the wait is always tough, you can do it though!

As far as I know there isn't one set up already, but if you fancied making one you can always do so here and I am more than happy to add it to the directory in the first post of this thread :yep:

It totally depends - you've applied quite early so it may mean you get a response in a few weeks, but it can take up to a couple of months. Average wait time is usually around 7 weeks
