You've just listed universities, nothing about you. They're good universities, sure; but whether on not they're good for you - how can we even begin to advise you when we have nothing about you

I thought predicted grades weren't important because it can all change with your final year 13 exams. I don't even have my predicted grades. I just want to know if these are the best possible options...unless i'm missing something else that you need to know about me apart from predidcted grades.

Predicted grades are important. That is the basis universities decide whether to make offers on. Also what subjects are you taking as that can affect this was well. Also be aware some of these universities are very heavily over subscribed so are very risky. What university to apply goes much further than just picking 5. What do you want out of university. Where will you be happiest. I take it from this you want to be in London. Would UCL be a better choice than Edinburgh.

Ok I changed my op and added these things. Thanks. However if I do exceed predicted grades can’t I still go for a different university?

You will struggle to get into places like Oxford and Imperial without Further Maths and to get into these kind of universities you will need A*A*A*. Imperial has a 1 in 18 acceptance rate for Computer Science. There is not a definite university list for anybody. Based on your post possibly the best universities would be somewhere like Cambridge, Imperial, UCL, Durham and Warwick or St Andrews although not having Further Maths might be a problem for some.
