Basically i have been predicted AAAA, and i am applying to oxford, warwick, durham and royal holloway for physics. I got well over 90% in my AS physics modules, with 100% in the last one, but my physics teacher says he doesn't feel happy predicting A*'s this year since he can't 'guarantee' that i will get one. I'm not too bothered since not of the unis i'm applying to require the A*, but i'm worried i'll be at a disadvantage if i don't have it and other people do. Can anyone shed some light on this?

You are applying to universities that will most likely get applicants with AAA+. You are at the stage where you need to worry more about work experience, further reading etc rather just the grades.
IMO. AAA or A*AA they wont care so long as you have the entrance requirements predicted.

Ask your referee to put your UMS marks in your reference. As A* is a new grade it shouldn't make any different that you're not predicted one
