    I have been predicted to get really low grades in my advanced higher (CCC) and a C at higher. The advanced highers im doing are physics maths and chemistry and my higher is business management. I think these predictions are really unrealistic as I achieved a high A last year for all these subjects (Except busman which i didn't do) and even got 90% in my higher maths exam. The course i want to enter into needs AAA at advanced so i was wondering will my predicted grades affect my application

    Are these your fischer family trust predictions or your teachers' predictions? If they are the fischer family trust ones, your teachers may have put their actual predictions on your application.
    My fischer family trust predictions are DDDD or something in my last 4 A2s, but me and my teachers realistically predict A*A*AA. My teachers put their actual realistic predictions on my application, so ask your teachers if they did the same.

    Do you think that universities will think that these grades are some what unrealistic considering my previous grades?

    You have a reasonable chance of an offer then. I think that universities are fairly lenient with the predicted grades because different teachers will predict different things so they have to take this into account.
