I'm currently working towards my GCSEs and I'm planning to apply for Cambridge for university to do Chemical Engineering but I'm worried about my grades (these are all what I suspect I will be getting):
English Language: 6
English Literature: 6
Maths: 9
Further Maths: 9
Biology: 8/9
Chemistry: 9
Physics: 9
Computer science: 8/9
History: 8
Spanish: 7/8
Geology: 9
Music: 7

Planned A-level options:
Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics. Might also take Computer science or Geology if I can get into another school I applied for.

I also come from a grammar school so my grades are expected to be high compared to other people. What do you think is the chance of me getting into Cambridge?

This is nonsense. Your coming from a grammar school has no effect on the grades you'd be expected to get.

So nine A*s... you say you're worried now?
Not that Cambridge are that fussed on your GCSEs in the first place.

Also don't do more than 4 A-levels - universities, including Cambridge, are looking for quality not quantity.
