Sadly not with those predicted grades . But that doesn't mean you can't get into those universities, since nothing is finalised . If you do well in your summer exams you can apply via clearing and can still be taken on as they'll typically lower their entry requirements (A*AA is too ambitious imo).

If they have spaces and you meet their entry requirements (They lower them in clearing by a grade to 2) then yes its still possible. So make sure you smash them exams! You got this in the bag!

I feel like you should give a try and if it doesn't work you can make it through clearing, but still give a try they also look at your extra actives that you have done etc when they are making an offer

TSR is full of people complaining about the 'low' predictions their teachers have given them, but on average UCAS predictions are normally an optimistic estimate of what you'll get. There are people who do better, but in 2019 (the last normal year) only 21% of people met or exceeded their predictions. https://www.ucas.com/file/292726/dow...token=wswAnzge Don't apply to a bunch of universities with entry requirements beyond your predictions or the chance is you'll land up without a place anywhere.

Bluntly speaking, there is no way that you will get accepted into unis with ABB let along A*AA entry requirements if your predicted grades are BCC. So for now, the best advice would be to apply to 3 unis that have BCC entry requirements (they'll probably accept you if the rest of your application is good), one uni that has lower entry requirements (as a back up option), and one uni that has BBC (this can be your "they might accept me" uni).
However, if you ace your A-Level exams and exceed your predicted grades (which you can 100% do with some hard work), you can go into adjustment and see what other better unis are offering places (adjustment is different to clearing btw) and then apply to better unis through there on results day.
Good luck! I hope you get the grades you want in the end

I applied to AAB unis with CCD predicted grades. I got rejected by Edinburgh and UCL. I got offers from Warwick and KCL. So why not? Go for it!
