I'm currently studying Computing and Electronics at AS level and doing a BTEC IT Level 3 Diploma. Looking back I know I should have done an engineering BTEC but back then I really wasn't entirely sure on what I wanted to do.
I've seen this course and coming from a huge space enthusiast it looks great to me but no matter what I do it doesn't look like I can meet the entry requirements for it or any similar course. http://www.kingston.ac.uk/undergradu...ce-technology/
Does anybody have any advice for me right now and any direction towards what subject I should drop next year? (My college strongly encourages dropping a subject after year 1 and unless you get extremely high grades you don't really have a choice)
Any help is appreciated

There are BTECs, Foundation years or HND courses that require lower grades but would then allow you entry to a degree - ie. there is a way to do this - if you are prepared to take several extra years to get to your goal. Doing an HND etc and then a degree is a very common route for many successful engineers.
Unis of Brighton, UWE, Salford, UCLAN and City of London all do Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering degrees with a Foundation year for those without high grades.
Teeside Uni HND - http://www.tees.ac.uk/undergraduate_...ngineering.cfm

City of Bristol College HND - http://www.cityofbristol.ac.uk/cours...ering-level-5/
Newcastle College - Level 3 Diploma - http://www.ncl-coll.ac.uk/school-lea...reas/aerospace
There are also Apprenticeships (and again this could lead to a degree) - Rolls Royce :http://www.rolls-royce.com/careers/s...ticeships.aspx
Or you could look at joining the armed forces : https://www.raf.mod.uk/recruitment/r...nd-engineering

Personally I'd go for either the Rolls Royce route or the armed forces route - depends which suits you best.
