    It's possible you need may need to go back to college before you can progress into university.

    What would you like to study at university? And where (either geographically or specific uni) are you interested in applying?

    If you know the required entry grades then you must be looking at a specific university course - different courses have very different entry criteria.

    Have you looked into your local FE colleges to see what courses are available? Can you pick your BTEC back up?

    Have you spoken to universities you're interested in to find out what they would recommend you take?

    The average grades required for majority of universities are that grades
    Do I not have any grades then is there anyone to contact to see if I have any.

    There's no general admissions requirements for university courses - particularly for situations like yours where you've mixed and matched different qualifications.

    You only have the equivalent of AS levels at the moment.

    If you speak to someone at your local FE college they should be able to help you understand what you've got and whether it's possible to resume your previous qualifications.

    Either that or speak directly to universities you're interested in and see what they would recommend for someone in your situation - they might say to resume your BTEC extended diploma or they might recommend doing something different like an Access to HE diploma or a foundation year.
