    Which am I most likely to get offers from?

    AS: A Biology, A Economics, B Chemistry
    A2 Predicted: A*AA

    Definitely you can

    At least I hope so, because I'm in a very similar situation to you!

    Just select your universities wisely, avoiding those which put a lot of emphasis on GCSEs like Oxford, LSE, Durham, and (somewhat) Nottingham. I think your university choices are fine.

    In my eyes, Getting better grades at A-Level than GCSE's is impressive and shows you're willing to work harder
