    Your GCSEs are a bit low, but they consider your grades in comparison to your school average - so if you went to a state school they're probably fine. Tbh, GCSEs don't matter all that much and there are no strict requirements.

    Being predicted A*A*A* at A level is very good - however have you double checked they would accept your subject combination? Having just one science and maths would be slightly on the weak side when AKAIK most successful applicants will have Further Maths too, and/ or a more "facilitating" subject than Business Studies.

    That being said, with such great A level grades you're almost guaranteed offers from many other universities, so it would probably be worth the risk of dedicating one of your UCAS choices to Cambridge
