    jneill this lad needs some advice
    So, Cambridge doesn't put a huge amount of importance on predicted grades, for the simple reason that they are often unreliable...

    But if you are realistically on target for A*A*A then for sure Cambridge can be one of your 5 UCAS choices. And yes the 3 A-levels you are offering are absolutely fine.

    Dunno sorry. But all unis are wary of predictions.

    Having said that, a candidate for any uni with predictions below their typical offer would be less likely to get an offer.

    M&FM + Physics is fine for engineering.

    It's quality not quantity.
