Without A-level Further Maths you would probably not be hugely competitive even if you did all A-levels. Also the BTEC is a bit of an issue because normally they are primarily assessed by coursework - whereas all degrees at Cambridge are primarily assessed by exam (for which there are no retakes). You present a big question mark for admissions tutors wondering about your ability to deal with an exam based course then, and since it's quite popular as a course you end up being a weaker applicant.

Yes, you’ve told me that. When you signed up to your college it would either say Equivalent to one A-Level or nothing. Is it an extended diploma? Also, like artful_lounger said, Degrees especially at Cambridge are exam based, so you’d need to prove you can cope with exams.
