How hard is it to get DDD or higher

Hey lads, planning to do Business and finance National Extended diploma level 3. My aim is to either
1) get into a decent us SCHOOL for Finance major, such as CSU fullerton or maaaaybe NYU (lol sat requirements are insane)
2) if that doesn't work out, then I would like to go to a semi-target or AT least a low target school for investment banking in the UK. Such as nottingham or York

For both of these I generally need DDD or above (D*DD) for notts. and DDD for the USA as DDD would give me a gpa of 4.0/4.0 unweighted. Giving me access to most UNIS providing my SAT score and EC's are good enough.

my question here is. for the business (and finance) btec level 3 National extended diploma, how hard is the course? How much would one usually struggle to get DDD or above.
p.s I took GCSE business studies and got 6A on my november mock and am predicted 6A in the real thing, (couple marks of a 7) with zero revision whatsoever in business, so found it good. I just pay attention (most of the time ) inclass. Allhamdulillah
so Insha'Allah (God willing) Im tryna get DDD how hard is it to do? LMK thanks

engineering is great loads big unis accept it like bristol if you take a aptitude test the maths in btec engineering is also good some units like further math for engineers and calculus for engineering have a lot of maths i think further maths for engineers contains 5 units of AS maths

Where can I research the units of btecs, the college I'm considering is offering aeronautical engineering level 3 extended diploma

Also, my concern with college is that it's regarded as the place people who failed their gcses go, and My dad seems to think that I'm too smart to go there and I'd become a degenerate.
(Also, I'm not sure I want to go to uni, I ideally would like to do a degree apprenticeship probably)

you need to tell your dad to stop being so old fashioned i used to have the same viewpoint until i did my research i strongly recommend you do research on the course like i did it really reassured me that btecs where good
