    If your predicted grades are bang on the requirements, are you at a disadvantage to someone who has predicted grades above the requirements?

    eg: A*AA requirements, I'm predicted A*AA and someone else is predicted A*A*A

    I doubt it, unless the course is very competitive and other areas of your application aren't strong. For example, if you got 2A* at GCSE and are predicted 1A* at A2 you may be a weaker candidate than one with 10A* at GCSE and predicted 3A* at A2. Tbh your grades are only one part of your application and (I can only assume) you'll be absolutely fine.
