    One of my choices entry requirements are AAB-BBB, typical offer AAB. My predicted grades are ABC so I fall in the category, however if I end up getting ABC/ BBB as my final results will I still be accepted?

    It depends. If an unusually large amount of people want to do your course, then the odds are stacked against you, and vice versa. I got a conditional offer of AAA from Birmingham to study Maths, and even though I only ended up getting ABB, I still got accepted. It's different for each course and uni.

    It depends on the demand for the course, how many people with offers for it do better than you on results day and, this is very important, whether the university wants a baseline of no lower than a B in all subjects. If they do, then BBB will trump ABC.
