Yes you can do both

Make sure you understand the size of each of the BTEC qualifications

Subsidiary Diploma = 1 A level
Diploma = 2 A levels
Extended Diploma = 3 A levels

obviously take a mix that will total the number of A levels you want to take, usually either 3 or 4, so normally people who take the Extended Diploma dont take an extra one unless it is required for their chosen university course e.g. Engineering or IT/Computing and Maths

the BTEC Diploma is usually taken with with 1 or in some cases 2 A levels or another BTEC Subsidiary Diploma

and the BTEC Subsidiary Diploma is usually taken with a mix of 2-4 A levels or other BTEC Subsidiary Diplomas

Hope this helps
