    I wouldn't ever worry about your starting point, in careers like this it will most often take you as far as you are willing to go, I also began with a btec in engineering and an AS in chemistry. However the btec was enough for me to be considered for an interview for an apprenticeship, and from there I just went through more education via my apprenticeship. This has given me a HND plus all the hands on knowledge, with the availability to continue to agree when the time is right. If anything sciencey is the career route you want just do lots of research into places taking apprentices or courses that will build you up in the direction you want to go.
