    Will colleges look at your target grades or predictions as the school has set me low targets for odd reason despite me achieving high grades ?

    Yes, they will. I recommend talking to your teachers or the principal about this to get it changed if you are indeed getting higher average grades.

    I've been told that they don't by my teachers. In the end, if you do well during your actual GCSEs, you should be fine. They're not going to reject you if your targets are 5s and you get 8s.

    Colleges care a lot more about your predicted grades, so they have an estimate of what you will achieve in the real exams.
