    I was just wondering if you knew anyone who got into chemical engineering with AAB predictions into a university that requires AAA.

    The teachers have predicted me AAB in maths, chemistry and biology and just wanted to if I would have a chance in getting into a university that requires AAA

    It's worth a shot, but perhaps don't apply to more than one, maybe 2 at most.

    I know people who have had offers via Clearing for engineering courses requiring AAA with ABC achieved.

    As HW says, there's no harm in applying to "aspirational" courses (i.e. above your predicted grades). It's fine to apply to 1 or 2 such courses, plus a couple at your prediction, and 1 or 2 below it (for insurance).

    Many universities, for many courses (including ChemEng), allow a one grade miss from their offer, and some will even allow a 2 grade miss.

    Plenty of people, like Doonesbury I've seen people with ABC who've got into AAA courses. However those people also got in after already having an AAA offer. I vaguely remember seeing one person who applied with AAB or AAA for a course which required one grade higher than that and got an offer, but it's not something I've particularly looked out for.

    Whatabout when they're giving offers, do you reckon they'll still give an offer if I'm one grade off the requiremnt as Chem eng isn't really a popular course

    ChemEng is popular but for most universities they are reasonably likely to offer you if you are a grade off.

    Are you applying to the BEng course? If not that's usually a grade lower.
