In which universities (UK & USA) can I apply with 4A in AS levels (CIE)?

Hi, I'm a nov 23 candidate of CIE AS levels and I got AAAA on Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Further maths? My parents have been swearing at me and abusing me because these grades are not enough to enter top universities like MIT, Harvard, Oxbridge, etc. This makes me really sad and I don't know where to go. They're telling me to stop my education all together because it's not worth going to a bad college/university as most job employees (STEM field) are looking for A*A*A*A* in A levels. I want to study computer science at university/college.

Now can anyone with the same grades please tell me which prestigious/good universities I can apply to? The MIT, Harvard, Oxbridge dream is over because no matter how much they say "grades are not everything" they're not gonna accept me. I unfortunately don't have any other olympiad/project/internship related interests about myself, all I have are these grades to show at my university application.

Please help me, I really want a successful future and getting into a good university is my first step towards fulfilling that dream. Please don't discuss here about "bad universities/average universities are good enough xyz" because I already know which bad/average ones I can apply to and get in.

What is specifically want to know is which prestigious ones will still accept me despite my non lucrative grades.

Again???

Why do you only talk about your AS grades, not your full A-levels/predictions?

American unis are very holistic so I do advise to plan a very good essay to impress unis also they do care about your personality as well as your extracurricular activities so get cracking with that during the summer!
