    What makes you think you can't apply?
    What do you want to study?

    Dont think the number of GCSEs matter that much if you have maths and english,

    If you satisfy the entry requirements with your predicted grades then you'll probably get the offer (probably)

    I mean, you might be seen unfavourably compared to people with, say, 11. Don't go applying for Oxbridge or something, but of the myriad of universities in Britain I'm sure you can get into one of them.

    I don't know if this is still true, but from what I understand, GCSEs are only one factor and they're mainly just used when two applicants are tied in shortlisting.

    You need to start looking at Uni websites and seeing what grades/subjects and GCSES they want for the subject you are interested in (they will all be different).

    And you need to read these two articles from TSR ;

    Not true.

    If a Uni states it wants '5 GCSEs including A in Maths and B in Biology or Chemistry' that is what they mean. If you don't have that, you will get a straight rejection.

    Read the requirements carefully - Universities state clearly what they want, and if you apply without it you make the admissions tutor's job really easy.

    This isnt true either.

    If you meet the entry requirements for both A levels etc and GCSEs, your Personal Statement will then be read. THAT is what will determine if you get an offer or not. Just having the required grades is not enough.

    You can apply then if you meet their minimum entry requirements.

    My friend got into Chichester with literally no GCSEs except English Literature (C). You'll do fine especially with those predicted grades. Conversely last year I got in with A*ABB. Really, they take pretty much anyone that can prove they have a passion for their course. Kind of respect that.

    Was thinking more when they don't state the 5 Cs, but aye, the correction is much appreciated.

    If you read my original statement then you should notice that I said probably twice to emphasize that point. Also I think you've overweighted the personal statement. It is read and it is considered but its not always the deciding factor.

    And got in through Clearing through just a phone call I might add. Honestly, your chances at Chichester I would wager are pretty good. Best of luck.
