Help with uni

Hi,

I’m studying BTEC level 3 general diploma in IT, there are 12 units this would be my final year. I want to know if a uni would accept the course I’m studying. My tutor said that it was equivalent to 2 A Levels

I think it depends on what you want to study, but to answer your question - most universities do accept BTEC qualifications.

I'm not sure what a "general diploma" is, but in terms of the ones equivalent to 2 A levels I'm guessing the bits in bold are most relevant to you. It's best to email the uni directly if you're confused though.

They will want your BTEC plus another single BTEC or an A level totalling 112 UCAS points;
'Considered with one A-level or an equivalent level 3 qualification
Either this qualification or an accompanying A-level / level 3 equivalent must be a Technology, Science, Mathematics or Computing related subject'
so this will be at least DM plus a Grade C in A level.
