From my most recent mocks I got ABD, I'm worried that I won't reach my offers (ABB) for my desired university. Do Uni's tend to have more of a leeway in context of what you study, i.e. further maths?

I would say it depends on the university and the course - especially how competitive that course is. What are you applying for?

I'm applying for Computer Science (With a year in industry). I'm planning on studying at Loughborough Uni, or potentially Newcastle Uni if I get a better offer.

Computer science is competitive but not as much as Medicine. I would say that there is some lee way with grades every year - with clearing you could certainly find a spot for Computer Science if the worst happens. IDK if you're eligible but you might want to consider looking at the PARTNERs programme for Newcastle as that can help lower entry requirements.
