    Depends what you mean by 'good uni', only some russell group universities accept BTECs, however maths and geography are both facilitating subjects therefore highly regarded by universities. Economics is clearly appropriate for finance, so that's a good choice. I would just advise you to look into which unis accept btec qualifications, oxbridge don't. However if it's something you're interested in, it might be worth a try just for the enjoyment as most unis only require 3 a levels, and you're doing a levels too so it should be good!!

    I suspect the BTEC might cause you some trouble but as you have three A levels, two of which are facilitating, you would probably be alright. If you wanted to be safe you should take a fourth A level/just AS (if possible) instead of the BTEC.
    You could look up some unis you are interested in and see their stance on BTECs

    Look at the requirements of what uni you want to target. If you can meet them, you have a good shot. Good levels in maths, economics and geography would be particularly good as they are well regarded by universities.
    Engineering shows a breadth of skills, but some universities will not be interested in the BTEC as a qualification (but they may be interested in the skills gained from it). Have a look what the unis say.

    Look at the universities that you want to go to and see if they accept BTEC.
