888876665 in GCSEs. Is it a good idea for me to apply to Cambridge with these GCSEs? My predicted grades for A-levels are A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths & Physics and I'm applying for engineering

I’m not to sure how fussy they are but I got told that if you have atleast 5 GCSEs between 7-9 that’s fine. You did better at gcse than me even got better predicted than me but I’m also applying for engineering. If your ENGAA test goes really well I don’t think they’ll reject you

As long as your predicted grades are at the standard they're looking for you should be fine, unless prior data suggests that you wouldn't reasonably achieve that. I don't think your GCSEs are bad enough to instigate such a cause for concern.
Whether you receive an interview will also depend on your admissions test score
