Depends on the university, check on their website and UCAS to see if they accept, most unis accept BTECs apart from oxbridge and such
Hope this helps

Majority of unis accept btecs just some of the ‘top’ ones like Cambridge etc don’t. Also it doesn’t necessarily matter what options you take at a level or btec for uni 🙃

This isn't correct. Oxford University will accept a BTEC alongside A levels for several courses, including Fine Art. See here

Lots of universities will be happy to accept one BTEC alongside two A levels for criminology. It's not practical to give you a list here, so please research the entrance requirements of a few unis that you're interested in before starting your Level 3 courses

No problem - and you're absolutely right. Always double check any advice you receive on here, particularly advice which isn't referenced
