What subjects are you taking? You could consider a gap year.
Otherwise, focus on the 2 subjects you have U's in and try and cram revision before your mocks. Look at past papers and familiarise yourself with the markschemes.

Put the effort in now and try and get at least C's in all your subjects. At uni, you could do a foundation feeder course onto your real subject or go through clearing and do joint subjects. They'll be more lenient in terms of grades.
Write a good personal statement.
Take a gap year.
Or redo this year.

Do your best in the mocks and exams to try and get Cs to get decent predicated grades. You do your exams like normal, just apply for uni and defer maybe? If your grades are still not great, doing year 13 again is an option or doing your A levels this time next year so you have an extra 6 months.

Your CAGs (centre assessed grades) others will decide. Your teachers have an input, but ultimately the gov. will choose.

In the gap year, you could get a job, volunteer, do work experience, build up your CV and do your A levels again.

Whatever you choose, ask careers at your college for advice and do research on your options, these are just suggestions.

those are difficult subjects, I took maths and further maths
Maths is relatively easy to cram, because there's sm resources online, e.g Physics&Maths Tutor. just work through your textbook and then do some papers before your mocks
