I am a US high school student, grade 12, and I have taken 4 AP tests (all 5s) but I believe I need 5 AP tests with scores of 5 and higher. I've heard that you can submit "teacher predicted" AP scores for AP classes currently enrolled, but haven't received scores for yet. Is this true? And, if so, how do predicted scores get submitted to Cambridge? Where/how in the application process can I do this?
Any insight or help on this process would be greatly appreciated.

Yes you can send your predicted scores through Cambridge so then they’ll give you an offer once they look at your application. If you have a good personal statement to why you’re a good application for that course and get the grades they want you to get in the end, you’ll get accepted. I suggest contacting them because if you don’t have much luck getting experience or advice on the application process since idk much about the process since you’re a us student

i'm pretty sure UCAS has a dedicated section for predicted grades, no?

Otherwise you'd have to email the uni directly. Are you only applying to Cambridge? Thought Oxford was more popular in the states but I keep hearing of Americans applying to Cambridge these days

Thanks so much, we haven't gone thru the whole application yet. Appreciate it!

The people telling you that you need to contact the uni separately probably don't know how cambridge specifically works. For most unis emailing them is probably the best option, but cambridge has a system in place already.

Cambridge (and cambridge alone) sends out a separate form called the SAQ in early October. If UCAS doesn't let you enter a qualification, then this form is where you should enter it, and any other information you feel is relevant to your application.

Edit: although I'm pretty sure UCAS should allow you to add any qualification, don't quote me on this but I think there's an "other" option if yours isn't listed on UCAS
