    I will most probably be predicted BBC
    Plymouth- BBC
    Hull- BBC
    Leicester- BBB
    Sussex-ABB
    City London- ABB

    Are these okay as I have a lot of work experience and lots to write in my personal statement

    The two ABB choices are not a good idea. Any course/Uni asking for A grades will be picky - and you are presenting with THREE grades below, so you chances of an offer are near zero. Even if you do get an offer, whats the point? They want ABB and you are nowhere near that, so choosing it as your Firm would be a total waste of time and emotion.

    This is what anyone's 5 UCAS choices should look like:

    1 'risky' choice - just above your predicted grades, not 3 grades different.
    2 or 3 - at your predicted grades
    1 or 2 - below your predicted grade

    So, I'd suggest you go for Sussex and choose another BBC instead of City.
