You can't do a medical degree with a BTEC

Sport and exercise medicine is a small specialty and has traditionally been practised by interested doctors with a background in orthopaedic surgery or general practice. In recent years its become a specialty in its own right which you can go into after completing medical school, two years of foundation training and two years of core medical training.

But before all of that you need to qualify as a doctor first. Getting into medical school requires lots of planning and it takes several years to put together a competitive application with the right grades and subjects, work experience, volunteering etc. There are options for students who've not taken A levels though e.g. Access to Medicine courses. I think you need to set aside some time and do some reading:

You can't get into medical school with BTECs, you need A levels or the equivalent (IB etc). BTECs are targetted more towards getting into vocational courses.
