I'm trying to apply to the UCL comp science bachelor's course. I'm predicted A*,A,B with A* in psychology , A in Economics and a B in Mathematics. I've also got a contextual offer with UCL due to my realising opportunities programme therefore I can get a lowered offer equivalent of 2 A-Level Grades. So e.g a AAA could get dropped to a ABB for me. I really want to go UCL but they state that even with contextual offers they want a A* in Mathematics. In my AS's I literally didn't revise but I really think I could get a A* but I don't want to apply to UCL if they're just going to reject my offer . so? And also I was only 4 marks off a B ( Predicted A), shall I apply?

they’ll almost definitely reject you. even with contextual offers, you still need to be predicted to the standard offer, that’s how they work.

As above, the even with the contextual offer you're failing to achieve the specific subject requirement of maths. Since this is a critical subject for computer science, it's very unlikely you will be considered. I would recommend you apply in a gap year after you get your results, or look into other universities for that subject.
