Agreed. I really don’t think those grades are at all up to scratch. Maybe you should consider some resits OP. The top universities especially will be looking for much higher grades than that

I'd say this is pretty mediocre and average, what kind of extracurriculars have you taken part in? Could really strengthen your application for top RG Universities.

Hi OP! The above posters are joking. You have clearly done (or are predicted to do) very well. It isn't possible to say how likely you would be to get an offer with the information you've given alone, but with those grades all the universities you've listed would take your application seriously.

I mean I know it is impossible to predict with just grades.
But what those people replied above really shocked and scared me.

Often on TSR students will ask if they are competitive with near-perfect grades, to which the answer is always yes. Sometimes people do this to intimidate others or to brag about their results. It's quite common, especially in the Oxbridge forums. That's why they were joking

You get quite a lot of threads asking 'I've got these grades? Can I get into this uni?' and then they'll have the grades listed on the uni websites.
But yeah, I imagine if you wanted to do maths or physics/natsci, you'd have a pretty good chance. Remember you can only apply to 5 unis though, so you need to make sensible choices (I applied to conservatoires too, so it was a bit different, but for unis I applied to 2 aspirational unis, 1 I'd probably get into, but could have gone either way, and 2 back up ones I was pretty sure I'd get into. I did end up choosing a conservatoire though).
Cambridge in particular will be very hard to get into (as I'm sure you're aware), so that will count as an aspirational choice, even though you meet and exceed the grade requirements., as would Imperial and UCL. Manchester and Durham would be mid range and Birmingham and Bristol I'd say are probably safe bets (from what I know about them, don't quote me, I'm not a maths/science student, so I don't know about the exact processes).

If you have 3 A*s in relevant subjects you are pretty much guaranteed to get offers from everywhere except Oxbridge (for subjects other than medicine). Your chances of an Oxbridge offer will be somewhat better than the average rate for all applicants of ~20%, but there are no guarantees because of the importance of other factors (most notably the interview).
