I’m thinking of applying to Newcastle but their entrance requirements for the course I want to do say AAA-AAB, if my predictions are AAB is there any point in me applying?

Yes, unless the course is super competitive, I don't see a reason why you shouldn't at least try

Be careful of 'grade ranges' like this.
Often the second grade set is for 'contextual offers' (low performing schools etc).

So never, ever, just assume that you'll get the lower offer - always check with the Uni exactly what the criteria is to get the lower offer before you apply.

its definitely worth applying obviously the AAB is usually for contextual offers as someone has already stated however people frequently apply for courses w higher grade requirements than their predicted grades. Obviously if its a really highly competitive course like comp sci or law then its a bit risky but most courses yes it absolutely is worth it. A lot of it is bs anyway like unis like to have higher grade requirements than what they actually are willing to accept (it all kinda comes out in clearing).
