    It depends on the competition and the strength of your application, but sometimes yes.

    Occasionally, depends on how competitive the university is i.e. getting an offer for an AAB university with ABB predicted is quite likely whereas getting an offer from an A*A*A uni with A*AA predicted is less likely

    If say your predicted grades are AAB and the entry requirement is AAA, it isn't unheard of for them to give you an offer but of AAA.

    Some universities do tell you on their website if they give offers despite lower predicted grades, for example Royal Holloway says that they occasionally do. All depends on your whole application like personal statement, references and I guess how nice the Admissions are feeling!
