My GCSE grades are: A*AAAAAABBB
My AS grades were: ABBB (French, Biology, Maths and Chemistry respectively)
My predicted Alevels are: A*AAB (possibly A instead of that B in chemistry)

I've done many extra activities, work experience, courses, lectures, summer schools etc all linking to pharmacy.

The universities I'd like to apply to are: UCL, Kings, Brighton, Nottingham and Bath.

Do I hold a good chance in getting into any of them?

Yes! Of course you do! Your AS and GCSE grades are excellent for pharmacy, and pharmacy is much less competitive to get into compared to med/dentistry, so you don't need to worry!

Well for a start, why are you taking all 4 subjects to A2? You don't need to and it's a waste of time; it will probably make your other subjects suffer. Drop maths and take chemistry, biology and French.

I'm fluent in French so A2 French isn't hard for me, it's basically an extra Alevel giving me an A*

Is it your mother tongue? A lot of universities don't count mother tongue languages at A-level.
