I currently take 1 BETCH and 2 alevels, and I have applied to uni and already got 1 rejection. My predicted are D*AA which is equivalent to A*AA has anyone got offers from RG uni before with a BTECH qualifiation Im worried that UNI is not as keen accepting BTECH students, especially unis like bristol and bath and etc...
Well a lot of RG unis will accept a BTEC along with 2 A levels but not all of them. They should tell you on their website for each degree subject what the entry requirements are and if they say they accept BTEC qualifications in conjunction with at least one A level then they do.

But it's still not an automatic acceptance because they may also look at other things like the subjects you are taking and your personal statement.

I have, with 3 A-Levels and a BTEC Extended Diploma - but I was still offered based on my BTEC and an A-Level at unis.

You've mentioned your predicted grade for your BTEC being D*. What BTEC Level 3 qualification are you taking (certificate, diploma, extended diploma)? Are you only getting one part to your BTEC grade (as opposed to 2 or 3)? If so, that will probably be your issue.

I'm Applying for accounting and finance, and yes i have looked before they all accept it, but thats only what they say on websites and its RG a BTECH may drag your application down and less chance of getting in compare to an applicant who has 3 strong a-level so just wondering if anyone got in RG uni with a BTECH

I have taken an extended certificate so it should get an overall 1 grade as it equivalent to 1 A-level

I work in RG admissions and we do consider BTEC/AL combos. So long as you met any subject requirements you should be considered fairly so it's not the case that we prefer pure AL candidates.

in this case it may just be that you overall application wasn't quite strong enough, you may still get good news back from your other choices.

One of the main reasons for rejection is not having an appropriate subject. A&F courses often have a Maths requirement either requiring A level Maths or a set grade at GCSE. Do you have these. Another reason is subject choices. It could also be they have better qualified candidates. You need to ask the university for the reason you were rejected.

Currently, hold 3 offers at good RG unis with a BTEC for A&F. It's possible.
You may need A-level maths for Bristol

Looking at it you dont meet the criteria at Bristol. They want effectively 4 A levels for BTEC. Ask for feedback

D*DD in EITHER Engineering BTEC National Level 3 Extended Diploma, plus A in Mathematics at A-level (or equivalent), OR any Applied General BTEC National Level 3 Extended Diploma,plus A in Mathematics at A-level (or equivalent). Applicants taking Engineering BTEC may be invited to take the University of Bristol Maths test in place of A-level Mathematics.

I think you have looked for the wrong degree, this is not the requirement for A&F degree

An issue with kings is they require grade 6 or B in GCSE English Language for nearly if not all courses. It is very unusual. Most Maths or Science based courses elsewhere require grade 4 or C.
