At GCSE I didn't get good results, mainly B's and C's. I got a B in Maths and a C in English language. In are recent mocks I got 4 A's. If I got 4 A's at as level, would that give me a chance to get in a Russel uni'?

Depends which uni and hat you want to do

if you want to do maths, you should aim for the best of the best if you want to get into a russell group!

Anyway russell groups aren't the be all and end all of uni's plenty of good ones that aren't russell groups :P

Yes definitely!!! All you need at GCSE is 5 Cs (I think? It's been a while since I was at school) and many Russell Group universities give offers to students with BBC grades at A-level. Getting into a Russell Group university isn't as prestigious as it's perceived to be, some are further down the league table than other really great universities which happen to be ex-polytechnics.

What degree are you thinking of doing and where?

You can easily get into a Russel Group with 4 A's at AS.

I suggest doing a spot of research into the entry requirements of the universities you might be interested in.

It's also worth remembering that the Russell Group does not encompass every good university in the UK, and that not every Russell Group university is itself particularly good across the board.
