I'm studying BTEC National Extended Diploma, expected a D*DD-DDD and don't have the best of grades for GCSEs, mainly 5s and 6s. Im looking at studying economics, does anyone know any universities that will be willing to accept these?

This google query comes up with several, although not all that it lists are appropriate.

One which appears to be a good match is the Business Economics BA (Hons) course at Birmingham City University. This list of their entry requirements says:

Level 2 Qualifications
GCSE English language and mathematics at grade C/4 or above
...
Plus one of the following Level 3 (and above) Qualifications
...
Pearson BTEC National Extended Diploma (2016 – present) DMM
If you'd consider something like Bath's International Development with Economics BSc (Hons), then this page might be worth a look. It says:

Pearson Edexcel BTEC RQF Typical offer
DDD in the BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (RQF).

We prefer BTEC qualifications that include units that provide preparation for numerical study, for example, qualifications in Business. We are unable to consider qualifications in Public Services, Uniformed Protective Services, Travel and Tourism and other less relevant disciplines.
However, note that although Bath are happy with a grade 4 for GCSE English, they want a 7 for GCSE Mathematics. That perhaps rules-out this course.

There are probably lots more out there. You just have to take the time to look through each plausible match on each page of those search results, and read the entry requirements carefully.
