Your predicted grades are made by your teacher/ referee. What have they said?

All exam boards have the same specification.
Also, TSR Jessica is a bot.
Regarding predicted grades - you want high predicted grades, but how much work have you done to try to secure them?
If you're desperate to go to Cambridge and you wind up with ABB predicted then apply after you've gotten your A-level results.

no my predictions are A* A* C (but I need an A for maths to be considered even though I'm applying for English)

Well then what you need to do should be self-explanatory - revise maths as much as is needed over the summer. And apply anyway - who knows what might happen. Maybe you'll ace the admissions test.

Also this comes across as you being confused as to why the A in maths could possibly matter - it's not about the content, it's more about showing that you're able to get an A on top of your other subjects. Wherever you end up going, you'll be working harder and the university will want to be sure that you're up for the task.

Make an actual plan though. If you just say to yourself "I'm gonna revise all of maths" it won't happen.
