You can use the offer predictor, but take it wit a pinch of salt.

You can also use unistats and look at average ucas points.

If predicted the same or better then reasonable chance of an offer.

If they are 1 grade below and you want to go there then less chance, but offers are made. I think you can risk 2 or even 3 in this range.
If they are 2 below then I wouldnt risk more than 1 of your choices.

So I would go for 2 steady and then 2 or 3 in the 1 grade below category.

Point is do you think you can get the grades? How risk averse are you? A choice is no choice if you dont want to go there

For the range of unis at that grade you can either research yourself or see if careers or the library has a copy of Heap on degree curse offers. No need to buy just look. Bookshops tend to have a copy as well.
