I have just received my A-levels results of which I have recieved A*BBac in Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Further Mathematics(AS) and History(AS) respectively. I was 2 ums off an A in A-level physics. I undertook these exams under extenuating circumstances of my grandfather passing away 4 weeks before my first exam. I am reapplying to univerisity next year completing the Further Mathematics A-level and boosting my Physics and Biology grade. I achieved 3 A*'s in GCSE and 7A's whilst achieving AAABC at AS level. I am reapplying to take mathematics at university. I hope to achieve A*A*A*A and a 1 in STEP I. It's a cliche saying on the student room but is there any point applying to the big universities?
Thanks in advanced for the help.
Just want to get some opinions watch

Of course there is point in applying to big universities and sorry about your grandfather. By the sounds of things you are a bright hard working pupil. I would however say just don't over work yourself with all of the A-levels if it restricts your overall performance. Work hard, play hard, try not to get too stressed out or that will limit you. But in answer to your original question, with those grades I would assume most top universities would have you such as warwick. I think cambridge would be quite strict with regard to you doing a third year but still give it a go...what's one of five UCAS choices?
