My predicted are A*BB and I applied to 4 AAB unis and 1 ABB uni because I think I can do much better than my predicted and get at least A*AB. What are my chances of getting an offer? UCAS calculator says I have 90% on 3/5 of the unis but I'm not sure now..

I applied to Southampton, KCL, QMUL, Birmingham and St Georges?

Edit: I got an offer from 2 universities what a day! And one even reduced my offer to ABB.

That means nothing to Admissions staff. They are not interested in your opinion of your ability, they just consider predicted grades.

Depending on subject and 'demand' for that course, you may be considered. Equally, you may not be.
So that is why only one risky choice like that is recommended - make yourother choices more realistic.

Which course are you applying for?

As the person above said, it doesn't matter to the unis what you think you can get. Getting offers AAB unis with A*AB predictions might be difficult because technically you don't meet the entry criteria, but if the A* is in a relevant subject it might help? Some more realistic choices (such as more ABB unis) might have helped but it's a bit late now if you've already applied.

Ah, I was told by teachers to put aspiring universities because I could always through adjustment. Oh well I guess it's too late now, thank you though!

I'm applying to biomedical science courses, thank you for your comment though. I hope I can pull in at least 2 offers.
