Use the course search on UCAS and then add UCAS points filter to narrow down courses with your predicted grades:

You'll be excluding a lot of good unis (Bath, Lancaster, Loughborough, etc.) if you just focus your search on Russell Group unis.

Thank you so much!
The usual advice for your 5 choices is -
1 or 2 choices just above your predicted grades - 1 grade and not in a avital subject.
2 or 3 at your predicted grades
At least 1 choice well below your predicted grades as your potential Insurance.

So, with BBB predicted grades, you could risk 1 or 2 choices at ABB.
Just be prepared for No, and make sure your other choices are courses/Unis you still actually want.

There is nothing magical about RG Unis - it doesn't mean 'better course' or that you will automatically be happier there.
For Pharmacy, its a GPhC accredited course and all courses qualify you as 'a Pharmacist' -and the NHS wont care where you trained and neither will your future patients. For other subjects, look for courses tat include placements/work experience etc - these add to your graduate CV and immediate job chances.
