I am currently in year 12 doing Doing double business and applied psychology. I think I will most likely get D D D in the exams but I am worried that the unis I want to apply to (Bath, Southampton, City (cass), Bristol, Reading) won't accept me because I am not doing A levels. I want to apply for Marketing or Business management in the unis Please help and give me advice

You have to contact the unis directly and see what they say.

Just check the entry pre-requisites & see if they accept your course for the course you intend to apply to.

Have you looked at their websites? They will normally say whether common qualifications like BTEC are or aren't acceptable for particular courses.

Here's a random business course at Bath's requirements, including discussion of BTEC:

Only checked for the first but Bath list their BTEC requirement on the course page:

https://www.bath.ac.uk/courses/under...y-requirements

"DDD in the BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (RQF).

We are able to consider the above qualifications in Business. You should be studying units that provide preparation for both numerical and essay-based study. We may be able to consider BTEC qualifications in other subject areas if they provide the same balance of numerical and essay-based study and you are able to demonstrate your aptitude for Business in other ways: please contact us to discuss your profile.

See the ‘Combinations of qualifications’ section for information about combinations of A level and BTEC qualifications that we can consider."

Usually top Unis will either accept a BTEC Extended Diploma, or BTEC National Certificate + 2 A levels, or BTEC National Diploma + 1 Alevel.
They will not usually accept National Certificate plus National Diploma on their own.

All you can do is email each Uni and ask - be explicit about the degree course you want to do and exactly which BTECs you are taking.
Btw, check the GCSE requirements carefully - Markietng often needs a hgh Maths grade.
