From what you've written, you meet the entry requirements - so you certainly "have a chance of getting into KCL". Whether you succeed in doing so with be down to a lot of factors, including;

your predicted grades,
your actual grades,
your personal statement, and
the reference from your school/college.

Or are you worried that there's a secret, unpublished set of entry requirements which say that only those with 3 A levels will actually receive offers?

Be aware that thousands of people who meet, or even exceed, the entry requirements who apply to KCL don't even get an offer. And this year many of those were left hanging until May only to be declined-by-default because KCL couldn't be bothered to enter a decision on UCAS. A 'don't care' attitude like that suggests a very poor attitude towards applicants and students. And yes, applying with a BTEC may well put you at the bottom of the heap since they clearly have a very 'elitist' academic attitude at KCL.

Thee are plenty of other top Unis where you will be more welcome with a BTEC - Bristol as one example.
