I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in but I'll do it anyway

I want to apply for psychology at a good university and I'm currently in year 13. My UCAS predicted grades are:
Psychology: A
Maths: A
Physics: C

The entry requirements for the universities I want to apply to are:
York: AAA-AAB
Loughborough: AAB
Lincoln: ABB
Bangor: ABB
5th choice undecided.

Because of my predicted C in physics, am I likely to get any offers from these universities? I'm currently really struggling in physics so I can't really persuade my teachers to raise my prediction to a B.
I am willing to put in the work to get a B by next summer, but I am just worried about not receiving any offers because of not meeting any of the entry criteria.
For my fifth choice, I'll probably have to put a university with low entry requirements but the thing is, psychology is quite competitive so the only unis with low requirements are the bad ones which I wouldn't go to even if I got given an unconditional offer from them.

Certainly not normally to York or Loughborough. Lincoln or Bangor may offer you a place as AAC is UCAS points equivalent to ABB.

With regard York or Loughborough, depending on your circumstances you might get a lower contextual offer.

If you exceed lower offers next year, you could look at Adjustment perhaps.

Oh okay, so is it not likely that York or Loughborough will at least give me a chance to get AAB?
The subject I'm predicted a C in is linear, so the grade I got for AS has no bearing on what I will achieve next year. Nevertheless, my AS grade has affected my prediction which sucks.
Going through adjustment seems like a good idea, although I can imagine it will be stressful!!

If York made you an offer it would probably be AAA unless you have contextual circumstances. If they did, you would have to take a view about your chances of getting that, or York's generosity if you didn't. However, nothing wrong with having an aspirational choice or two.
