Just wait for your A-level results. Things are so fickle with A-levels, you really can't assess how well you've done until you have the results slip in your hand. Also, don't go and do a law degree if you don't feel it'll lead to what you want; aka a Training Contract. Many people go to lower ranked unis and set their heart on Law with ABB, until they come to the application stage and realise there are no firms that want ABB (and the few that do are massively oversubscribed). Do do a Law degree at Uni if you are genuinely interested in studying law; just be open to other careers paths as you most likely won't get a TC with BBC/BCC at A-level.
From the options you've listed I think you should spend the next week having a good think about what you want to do. The graduate market is very tough at the moment and it looks like it will remain that way for the short to medium term. Think about it. Seriously. Yes, you may go to uni, you may get a 2:1, but what's the point of going if you haven't got a clear path. From you're GCSE and A-level results/predictions I think it's evident that you're better at writing and researching than the sciences. I think you should stick to humanities/arts as clearly they're your strengths.
You need to think about the UCAS Tariff requirement for many graduate schemes. Many will be beyond you if you get BCC. However, I do know that in accountancy, as long as you aren't into the big4 and high starting salaries, some of the smaller firms are happy to train you and you will compete the ACA from the Institute of Chartered Accountants for England and Wales. - Perhaps you're interested in accountancy? You could be looking at £20,000 for your training contract and then £40,000 start when you become ACA qualified. This is the route I'm looking to take. So I have a reason for doing my degree as well as a path I wish to follow rather than many airheads who go to uni, do a random degree and hope to get picked up by an Investment Bank or a big technology firm and have a nice £25,000 starting salary.
A final reminder is that you can consider school leaver schemes. They often pay well and give you qualifications whilst you gain practical experience. These are becoming increasingly popular and it isn't a bad choice if the sector you wish to join offers them - i.e. Law - not sure if you can become a qualified Solicitor from potential qualifications, but I'm sure you can find out
Sorry to ramble on about accountancy, but many firms offers school leavers' schemes.
Whilst you want to be the first from your family to go to uni, don't feel pressurised into doing so. Don't be one of those students who go for the party or to put off decision making for three years. I'd honestly feel if you sit down for a week and have a good think, whilst it may not confirm what you wish to do, you'll be better placed to decide what to do when you get your grades. At least this way, if you do get BCC you won't be a random money spinner for a clearing uni - they don't care what you do when you leave their university, all they care about is the tuition money that keeps them running. At the end of the day, they're businesses, and once you leave, you'll be the one looking for a job with your XYZ degree in the ABC sector, not them. Talk to a career advisor or friends.
All I can say is play to your strengths, have a serious think with yourself about what you want to do, where you want to be in 5 or 6 years and then embark on a path to achieve that goal. It's no good listing several areas and asking some random people what you should do with your life
It's your life, take hold of it.
Good luck and I hope you come to a reasoned judgement, and please don't pick something random in clearing without having first thought about it. P.S also waiting for results and am prepared for whatever may happen
