    Here's my situation. BBBB at As, all four subjects 5ums of an A (this will be noted on my reference)

    I will be predicted AAA, and I want to study a Law degree.
    Also at GCSE (2A* 10A 2B 1C)
    Plus an EPQ (A*)

    I'm worried that two picky universities that I'm applying for (Warwick(AAA) and Edinburgh(AAA-ABB)) will be highly put off by my As grades.

    I'm prepared to play safe if I have to, with Exeter (AAB) or Sheffield (AAB)

    I have contexual background to help me, and my ps and reference is very strong.

    What do you think? should i go for it? I'm worried I won't get the offers

    Hey I am in exactly the same situation as you. I have the same grades as you (although I am applying for English).
    I have spoken to admissions officers and with a strong PS and as long as you have predictions that MEET the entry requirements, they will consider your application. My sister got offers from leeds, manchester and sussex with BCC at A level and there is a girl applying to cambridge (classics) at my college with BCC as well. I think you have a strong chance if your PS is strong
