    I think it is possible to do this. It would be worth looking at some universities you are interested in, and check their entry requirements.

    I would say that's a strong combination. An A level maths with practical subject knowledge.

    Yes I know many people that have done it. You just have to score well on your Maths units in the Btec and do well in Maths A level.

    Yes - depending on the university. Just check the entry requirements.

    "Even" Cambridge accepts BTEC + Maths A-Level
    http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.a...es/engineering
    "All Colleges, except Trinity, welcome applications from students taking A Level Mathematics and a suitable vocational qualification, eg a BTEC Higher National Diploma in an engineering discipline. Applicants are expected to achieve the highest possible grades in A Level Mathematics and the vocational qualification. Those taking the Single Award Applied A Level in Engineering or the Principal Learning components of the Advanced Diploma in Engineering must also be taking A Levels in Mathematics and Physics. The Level 3 Certificate in Mathematics for Engineering is a suitable alternative to A Level Mathematics for these purposes."

    Edit: just noticed this is a slighly old thread which has been answered in full. So it's now closed.
