It would depend on what kind of grades you get. Most universities use a UCAS point based system, so the number of A Levels doesn't really matter. If you're unlikely to get amazing grades, you can look into courses that offer a foundation or extended degree. I did two A levels and didn't get the best of grades, but I'm at university in my second year doing a four year extended course. You should also speak with the support services at your college or sixth form for more advice.

I only have 2 A Levels too, its pretty much not possible to go straight into a degree without doing a foundation year or access course. A foundation year is an extended course that offers the first year as an introduction similar to what you'd do at a level. An access course is done at college before applying for university and is a way of gaining the extra points needed to get into the course you wish.
Ive chosen to do the foundation year, because it will be specified to the subject i wish to do and the university of the course i want to go to offers it. EG. Anything social science related you can do foundation years or access courses for those. I want to study international development so instead of doing an access with psychology/sociology/criminology modules im opting for the longer course at university so in the first year ill be doing modules based on international development but gaining the same skills as the access course
What subject do you want to do at uni?
