Getting into Uni?

It seems pretty obvious that I could use the university websites, but I wanted to know if I could get into a marine biology course after studying Double Applied Science, and BTEC Business at College.

Depends on the university. Have a look at the entry requirements for a few you're interested in.

Hey, are you currently studying at any University?

The majority of Unis offering this subject will want a science A level, but the only way you will find out for certain is by wading through Uni websites and checking.

Be aware that where a Uni might accept a BTEC 'in a relevant subject' they mean an Extended Diploma - because a Diploma may not have the right depth of study - but as an example, Plymouth has both Marine Biology and Ocean Sciences 'with Foundation' specifically for those without the right qualifications for the main degree.
