BTEC is mostly coursework and not exams so you have to work consistently through the course. but you avoid most exams. that might suit you better.
If its the only thing on offer then choose carefully but they are accepted by most unis and for most courses, except for things like Medicine or Engineering without A level maths.

If it gets you onto the course you wnat its much better than failing A levels and BTEC can be a good choice.

Plenty of universities accept a mixture of A Level and BTECs as long as the BTECs are level 3. It’s just a matter of researching entry requirements when you get to the end of year 12 and start of year 13.

I don’t think universities have policies on GCSE retakes but definitely something you can look into by contacting university admissions teams when it comes to applying.
