    Chemical engineering is generally A*AA with the A* in either maths or chemistry.
    Maths will not predict me anything higher than an A as I only got a C at AS, and my chemistry teacher is refusing to predict anyone an A* even though I managed a high B at the end of Y12.. my biology teacher is only predicting the grades we got at the end of year 12, again I got a B. The grades honestly don’t sound great but in comparison to my whole year group and just the fact I only had a week to revise, it was great.

    But right now I’m looking at AAB for my predictions.. how can I convince my teachers to predict me atleast an AAA ?
    And which uni’s offer entry requirements lower than A*AA

    Predicting you grades you're unlikely to achieve isn't going to do you any favours. Your chances of going from BBC to A*AA are very low. Find a course with more realistic grades.

    Firstly, your year group seems completely irrelevant. Just because they did poorly, doesn't mean a university normally requiring top grades will let you in on only fairly good ones.

    Secondly, why did you only have a week to revise?
