In 2015, 1 in 4 students who got into university in the UK did so with a BTEC (UCAS report – Progression Pathways Jan 2016)
BTEC Diplomas provide a practical, real-world approach to learning and an alternative route to traditional GCSEs and A Levels. BTEC qualifications were established over 25 years ago and are recognised by universities, employers and professional bodies across the United Kingdom and in over 100 countries worldwide. The table below shows how many UCAS points each of the most common qualifications are worth.
For example, an Extended Diploma at Triple Distinction* (D*D*D*) equates to 3 A Levels at A*
