    Would an ABB course be classed as 'aspirational' if I am predicted AAC? Or even a BBB course?

    I'm predicted A*A*A and i aspire to go to a BCC one - as long as it's one you want to go to, I'd say it's aspirational

    AAB would be aspirational IMO, you should be fine for anything ABB or lower.

    Have a look carefully at the uni requirements. Some unis (I think Edinburgh) don't accept anything less than a B in a subject, so you wouldn't be able to get an offer there. Others will go on equivalent UCAS points.

    There's no actual definition of "aspirational" for uni choices, so it's up to what you feel is best. It's always a good idea to try to apply for some unis with lower requirements, or you could keep a space back on your UCAS form to add another choice when you know how things are going. You can also look at UCAS_Extra and Clearing.
