    I'd say you would be able to - but maybe not the highest tier of unis.
    Having a strong personal statement and strong A-Level grades would help a lot, and be quite necessary.

    If you got those grades at AS and you get predicted that in A2, you could apply pretty much anywhere if you have good experience to put in your personal statement.

    I feel like universities don't really focus on GCSE's so much... It's more about A-Level grades, experience, passion for the course etc

    Going from a B in chemistry GCSE to an A at A level IS a big jump, especially as you got a c in Maths. Have you looked at dental hygiene and thereapist courses?
