At the moment i'm in my final year of GCSEs, I don't whether to either to take Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Further Maths at A level or to do a Level 3 extended diploma in Engineering along side an A level in maths or physics. At the moment i'm predicted 7s and 8 in sciences and in maths. In other subjects mostly 6s and 5s. I would like to go to University to study a degree in engineering afterwards. Would just like to get some guidance ?

a level 3 btec is worth the same as 3 alevels, but keep in mind that you often will need an a level in the subject you’re planning to study

Level 3 BTECs come in 1, 1.5, 2 and 3 A level sizes - you could potentially do a 1 A level sized one alongside mostly A levels. If you do BTEC engineering, then also do Maths - the majority of universities will require it for an engineering course.

Check the entry requirements for universities you are thinking of. A couple dont accept BTECs but many that do require the full extended BTEC plus A level Maths. Speak to your teachers. If they feel you are good enough I would suggest taking A level Maths and Physics
