Possibly depends on the uni and their clearing requirements, we can't really offer much help with this. Contact the uni

They might consider applicants with lower grades. You will only find out if they either publish clearing entry requirements on their website or by ringing up and asking them on results day if they don’t.

we don't know - it'll probably depend on how other people do as well

Well anyone who has received a contextual offer will have had the opportunity to get in with 'lower' grades than the standard offer (usually one grade lower), so yes - it's possible.

Thousands of people every year.

But which universities, for which courses and with which grades is impossible to predict

In clearing I got into a course with a usual offer of AAA with ABC... though that was last year, and before the teacher assessed grades U-turn... so a drop of that much again would be very unusual.

You might find Clearing offers are usually one, maybe two, grades below the normal offer.
