I got predicted AAB (maths, physics and biology) but i wanted to apply to UCL, Kings and imperial which have a requirement of AAA for the course i’m interested in. Is it even worth me going trough the process or is my chance too low ?

I'd apply to one or two out of the three. Obviously your chances are lower but predicted grades are only one aspect of your application. It's fine to have one or two aspirational choices.

You could also apply to two, wait and see if you get any response between now and the deadline, and use that to inform whether you apply to the other one as well, or to other, safer choices.

Applying will be a risk, but it's fine to include 1 or 2 risky choices.

It is highly unlikely you will get an offer from Imperial especially and also probably UCL. I certainly think it is worth trying Kings and maybe UCL but make sure you have a couple of universities you meet the requirements as well.
