Can I still get into a target school with my GCSEs?

So I did worse in my GCSEs than my mocks, I got the following;
877777666 6/5

For my A levels I am doing Economics, Mathematics, English lit and I plan on studying economics/accounting/finance at university. I plan on taking on AS further maths and retaking GCSEs maths in November next year (I got a 6 due to many extraneous variables but I know I can do better eg. My teacher would always skip grade 7-9 work and tell us to focus on getting a 5 even though I was in set 2)

Do I still have a chance of getting into a target university for economics (my top choices are LSE, Warwick, UCL, KCL, Durham etc.)

most unis don't care much about gcse results as long as you've passed them
just focus on getting good a-level results

only sixth forms acc care about gcse results
