Is it possible to get into Finance with BTECs?

I'm currently on track to getting DDD. What pathway should I take? University or an Apprenticeship?

Based in London only.

No ‘Grade A in A-Level Mathematics is required in addition to the BTEC’, but they accept all BTEC’s
Imperial, they have multiple but here is one https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/courses/undergraduate/economics-finance-data-science/
So not accept BTEC for this course

Hello @rifat.ahmed.001

You can certainly study for ACCA with the grades you are on track for, either with an employer (level 2 or 3 apprenticeship/traineeship) or independently (at college for example).

For ACCA you can start at our Foundation level with no academic requirements at all, or if you have a GCSE in 5 subjects (grades A-C) and 2 A Levels (grades A-E), or equivalent (T Level, BTEC, AAT L3) etc, then you can start the qualification at the next stage which is Applied Knowledge.

What is the chance of getting employment post-graduation by doing ACCA?
