Yes you can get into university with 2 BTECs and an A level. Do you have any thoughts about what you would like to study at university?

Most universities (besides a few) go through a UCAS point base system (known as UCAS Tariff) where your BTECs/A-levels equivalates to points and you will need a certain amount of points to get into whichever course you apply.

For me I just got a confirmed place at uni with btec h+S and 2 as-level. According to ucas points my My btec (D*D*) counted as 2 a* A-levels which helped me get my place.

To simplify, if a uni wants a level of AAB, that's around 136 tariff points which is a equivalent of 2 Distinctions and a B at a level.

Here's a link from UCAS that let's you calculate your points if that helps : https://www.ucas.com/ucas/tariff-calculator
