FAQ: I'm doing a BTEC National Diploma instead of A-levels. Will I get a place?

Possibly, but we're likely to ask you for some additional mathematics qualifications. Our course is highly demanding in mathematics, so you'll need equivalent to grade A in A-level maths to be prepared. A typical offer in terms of BTEC would be an overall result three Distinctions, with about a third of your units in mathematics. See question: What background in mathematics do I need? for more details.  Some people take A-level modules in addition to BTEC units to reach this standard.
