Just wondering, do the Good Unis such as Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and LSE even count 1. Short courses 2. Easy courses e.g. I.T 3. BTEC courses as 2 A*s such as Business?

Definitely not short courses, they'll look at your mainstream GCSE'S. It isn't that important your GCSE'S, but it gives you that extra touch when applying to the top unis.
When looking at BTEC'S, I mainly think this is frowned upon by many top unis. Probably some Russel Uni's would accept it, but to apply for the top uni's you need academic subjects.
More importantly, you need to concentrate on them A-Levels
