University considerations:
Oxford University - Maths (Req: A*A*A + MAT admission test)

Warwick - (Req: A*A*A if MAT test done OR + Step grade 1 achieved)
UCL - Maths (Req: A*A*A)

Bristol University - Maths (Req: A*AA)
Bath - Maths (Req: A*AA)

Abit of background knowledge:
Living and studying in one of the most deprived community in East London. Secondary school with low average gcse grades (So my GCSE grades are really good relative to the average)

Thanks.

You don't have much of a range there, are there any AAA or lower universities you could apply to as an insurance, a B in as with an A* prediction is a bit of an increase

Aim high can't see why Oxbridge would be out of reach

Maths degree has a very high requirement hence the similarity in requirements between those universities... And i'm mainly aiming for target universities, my insurance in semi-target.

If you aren't happy to have a lower entry requirement that what you've listed then perhaps you should see which might give you a contextual offer as your insurance assuming your school had a low enough rate of 5 gcses passes.

Try University of Cumbria, they're desperate for students and accept pretty much anybody.

imperial is the more prestigious uni on that list, but for mathematics degrees:

Imperial >= Warwick > UCL

imperial and warwick form part of COWI (cambridge oxford warwick imperial) which are denoted as the strongest maths departments in the UK

Imperials >= Warwick is a big claim m8, would definitely say it's the other way round with Warwick >= Imperial, especially given the god awful module choice at Imperial (also has lower grant funding) but there isn't much in it at all.

tbh i have also heard the same issues regarding module choices at imperial. It would be fair to argue that for maths warwick and imperial are equally matched, however both departments will be stronger than UCL. This is not to say UCL is not good, in fact UCL is very good
