It depends on what you're applying for. Most university courses will tell you on their website the minimum qualifications that they are looking for. If you are undequalified, speak to the person running the course for advice and they will tell you what you need to do (sometimes they can also make exceptions). Most universities expect a passing grade in Maths & English, but not always (I got into a top university without a maths grade however I did do an intense college course for 2 years before that to bring my grades up and also made a great portfolio).

This is the calculator for Access to HE. When you say D* - do you mean D at A-levels? A*? Distinctions?

Your question is a little vague, but if you essentially mean "can I achieve all distinction grades on an access to HE course?" then the answer is yes. I'll be finishing an access course in a couple weeks and so far I've achieved a distinction on every assessment, and so have most of my classmates. Just make sure to study and politely pester your tutors for guidance on how to achieve distinctions and make sure you follow their advice. Usually for assignments you can send them a draft beforehand and they will tell you if it's good enough or not, just manage your time well and do all assignments immediately so you don't fall behind. To clarify about the grades; you get 60 credits on an Acess to HE course, 15 are ungraded units like study skills and the introductory units, so University entry requirements will add up to 45 credits. So I assume that by D*D*D* you mean 45 credits at distinction level.
