Generally they wouldn't give you a lower offer, but they might consider lower predictions to make you an offer, or give a bit more leeway if you didn't meet the standard offer on results day.

Much more likely due to contextual offer criteria than individual circumstances.

There’s absolutely no harm in submitting the details to your uni choices though. Nothing to lose.
