    I got ABB at AS level last year. My target grades are AAB for my A levels.

    I’ve got a few university courses in mind that i’d like to apply for but the entry requirements range from BBB- BBC. Am i lowering myself? Could i do better? Or is this the safest option?

    It's a good idea to apply to universities with a range of entry requirements (one 'reach' choice, one or two safety choices and some in the middle) - that said, there's no point applying to a university with high entry requirements for the sake of it. If you like the unis that ask for BBB-BBC then that's where you should apply.
