Depends.

If you have amazing GCSE results and a cracking personal statement maybe, but seeming as you are predicted BBC it is unlikely you will get offers if the minimum entry requirements are ABB. But that does not mean its impossible!!!! Entry requirements get lowered so many times for each individual applicant

It also depends on the course you are doing, if it is in high demand and really popular then the chances are slim to none, whereas if you are applying for a course that is not as competitive, your chances will increase

I do hope you are exaggerating. Yes, if you have applied only to universities which require ABB with predictions of BBC, there's a strong chance that you will get five rejections. If your school has only just sent the form off, I suggest you go talk to them first thing on Monday. You have 14 days to change to a more sensible set of choices - normally, one or two universities with requirements above your predictions, two or three with requirements the same as your predictions, and one with lower requirements than your predictions.

It can be possible. A-level predictions are only one part of the application. It will probably depend a lot on the specific unis selection criteria and the competitiveness of the course. Some may exclude applications immediately based on predictions and some may look at the application as a whole.

Did you apply for a wide range of courses? BBC is quite below ABB and it's strongly recommended to only have 1-2 aspirational choices and the rest more reasonable if you want to avoid 5 rejections.

Although if you feel confident you will outperform your predictions next year and haven't received the offers you would like, you could take a gap year and reapply with achieved grades.

Some unis use the predictions, others don’t.

So my school has just sent off my UCAS application but all the uni's expect me to have ABB but my predicted grades are BBC but I know that in the summer I can get ABB I'm just wondering if they are going to reject me based on my predicted grades? like will they even give me a chance.
Swap out some of the universities requiring ABB or you’ll most likely get 5 rejections. One grade lower is sometimes ok but 5 options requiring 2 grades above your predicted grades? You’ll end up in clearing.

If you’re happy with taking a gap year and reapplying then there’s no need to panic and substitute choices.
There’s Extra and Clearing available (and in clearing you’ll be judged on your grades not your predictions) if you don’t get an offer from any of your 5 choices that you’re happy with.
Depending on the subject you’re applying to the chances of getting a couple of offers are pretty good.
