    They're all asking for higher grades than you achieved at AS. If you have strong predictions then it's possible you'll get an offer - but remember if you get an offer asking AAB, you need to get those AAB grades to be guaranteed a place.

    I would recommend either:
    • Choosing another choice (to replace one of them) that is asking for grades closer to BBB
    • Pick you 3 or 4 favourite options, and only apply to them initially. If you get rejections, add a lower choice. If you get offers, add the other 2 aspirational choices. You would need to add the other choices before January 15th to be on time, and it's possible you won't have received all replies by then (Warwick are notorious for sending offers late) but it would be a good way of gauging how competitive your application actually is
    • Checking UCAS_Extra to see if you are happy with this as a possibility
    • Reading up on Clearing, to see if you're happy with this idea if necessary
    • Considering taking a gap year and applying when you've actually achieved the required grades
