I feel that I am under predicted because I got AABB in my mock, so I think that I am going to use this service as I am capable to get A*A*AA.
My October IAS results are out in January, 1 week after ucas general deadline. Will my marks be sent to my 5 universities in time? I may well have gotten an offer/rejection, but will they reconsider me when my grades are sent to them? If not, how does adjustment work for an international student?

15th January is the deadline, so your grades won't be submitted to the universities by the UCAS deadline. However, adjustment is an option, but it depends on the course you want to study?! What course do you want to study? Because Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, Imperial never enter adjustment. But other universities will. Why not gain work experience or further studying on a course of relevance to your UCAS application and apply the following October to Oxford or Cambridge?

I want to do physics or engineering, considering RG unis.
By the way, my A2 grades are out in August 2021.

You won't be able to apply to Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, UCL or Bristol and maybe a few others. So really to maximise and boost your application you should submit an application for 2022 entry.

Physics can be fun but boring if you don't appreciate the 'theoretical' aspects of the course. Similarly, Engineering is more broader, because some universities like Durham and Cambridge do General Engineering for the first 2 years and then a specialised 3rd and/or 4th year. But you need to do a MEng 4th year to gain Chartered Engineer status.

You should also look at organising work experience with an Engineering company or even a Accountancy firm as so many Physicists and Engineers enter the City of London firms for the higher salaries.

Then for 2022 I may hopefully send a few A* to my application, and I will take another physics DP in 2020/21. I have my 2019/20 DP certificate next week and will declare it in my application.
The DP is actually a gifted program.
