    I cant say for sure mate, but you can try, if they see that youve made good progress then theyll put you on, but remember make a killer personal statement as well as this could tip the scales if they're looking at you 50/50

    If you don't meet their GCSE requirements I wouldn't apply to that university - Universities are much stricter when it comes to minimum GCSE requirements. If you do, and meet their BTEC requirements too/are predicted them, go for it, you have nothing to lose. Just make sure you have a safe insurance choice - I can't stress how important that is!

    I applied to Birmingham and Cardiff too, though not for engineering

    Best of luck
