    No way don't even bother. Most applicants' predictions far exceed the standard offer, also that B is a major red flag.

    Did you have extenuating circumstances for the B grades? No offence but it just seems like such a step down from your stellar GCSE grades.

    I suggest you definitely go for it.
    Your predictions are perfectly fine! Plus, an amazing personal statement, references, interesting extra curricular (assuming you have those already) and those amazing GCSEs add to your application's uniqueness.

    Even if you get a rejection, you obviously have 4 other offers to fall back on.

    Give it a go, you'll regret never knowing!

    I was ill during my main exam week with a flare up of ibs but I didn't apply for any extenuating circumstances so I guess it's too late now

    I don't know if you've applied, so this might be too late, but for anyone else reading thins thread Oxford don't consider AS Levels in a mechanistic way, like they do with GCSEs. If you've got top spot in your school or 8A+ for GCSEs and your predicted grades meet the offer you're fine ( and I don't think predicted grades are weighted as strongly as GCSE either). This obviously changes by subject.

    I'd reckon with 10A* at GCSE grades you'd be a strong applicant, as long as your A2s either meet the requirements if predicted, or one grade above if applying post A2
