Any reason not to ask for A*A*A over A*AA? Watch

I know this may seem like the typical TSR student post, and apologies in advance.

I am in Year 12 going into Year 13 in September. I achieved A*AB in my end of years and as I have a good relationship with my Head of Sixth Form and they have offered me a choice between being predicted A*A*A and A*AA. I would like to apply for Law at Oxford, UCL, LSE, Bristol, and Warwick.

Basically, I would like to ask if there is any harm in using the higher predicted grades. Is there any precedent of any of these universities increasing their offers from A*AA or AAA. I believe I could potentially achieve A*A*A, but would not want to disadvantage myself, and perhaps using the higher grade could grant me an edge over others in the application process.

Your predictions might as well be as high as possible. They would not increase their offer.
