Ideally, you should pick a uni that asks for lower grades. Currently, one uni asks for the grades you're predicted and the others are all higher. Look into UCAS_Extra because you'll probably need it.

If you apply to Sussex you most likely will have the chance of being rejected because of your target grades, then that's one place already gone.

I've got an epq which I'm predicted an a* for and this increases my ucas points with as level to 136 points and bbc is 112 points
Would this make a difference as hull and Plymouth only look at ucas points

Even if they look at ucas points it doesn't mean you can keep doing more and more things. They don't want applicants who do 100 things and get 2 UCAS points each.

You need to find out whether they will actually take your EPQ into account, and if so, whether they still want decent grades in the other subjects.
