Are these grades good enough for Cambridge Medicine

I am currently in Y11 and sitting my GCSEs and have the predicted grades:
Maths 9
English Literature 7
English Language 9
Biology 9
Chemistry 9
Physics 9
History 9
French 8
Economics 8
Design Technology 8
Further Maths 9

If I get similar grades in my GCSEs will my application seem weak for Cambridge Medicine as it it very competitive and I have heard many of the successful applicants get all 9s.

You are right it is very competitive but if you get those grades in the real thing = sufficient. Cambridge, unlike some med schools, don't put that much emphasis on GCSEs. What you do and get predicted on for your A levels > GCSEs.
