Yes. The best thing to do is look at the courses you want to apply for online, look at the grade and subject requirements and make a plan from there. Your predicted grades are fantastic.

Hey! I got the same predicted grades as you and i'm applying to *AAA law courses. If you look at Bristol's law admissions statement predicted grades are 40%, lnat is 40% and gcses are 20% so predicted grades are quite important - perhaps you could convince your subject teachers to change one predicted grade to an *A after summer (that's what I plan to do).

You have nothing to lose. Go for it. By the look of you're AS grades if you work hard you CAN achieve A*AA. Best of luck!

Oxford is AAA, so might be better to apply there than Cambridge.

Try to get your predictions to A*AA if you can; have a couple words with your teachers.

Bristol has contextual offers of AAB which you might qualify for. Nottingham is top of the line too, and only AAA.

Even if you can't get A*AA predictions, you should have an aspirational. They might just give you an A*AA offer and see if you meet it. Just don't have a few aspirationals.
