Firstly, it wasn't your teacher's fault that you were predicted D's - there is a calculation called a G-Score that works those out. I was predicted CCD :/ Realistically the exams you're taking now represent your performance so they should at least be a factor in your A2 predictions. However if you're close to the next grade (say you were 5ums off a B in the exam) , or your performance in the exam was shockingly bad compared to what you normally produce in class (and I mean mocks, not homework grades where you use notes etc) there is no reason why they cannot predict you a B. If your friend got a low C that may have been why.

For example, I got ABC but the B was 2UMS off an A and the C was 2UMS off a B so for A2/UCAS I was predicted AAB. These aren't linear though.

Best of luck

Thank you! Yeah, so I'm not really sure now whether it matters how many UMS you were off from a B etc, but it probably does because the AS are pretty much the same as previous years; but it just doesn't count towards the A level, I would be over the moon if I for ABC for AS, because then I stand a good chance of being predicted ABB which is what my first choice uni requires
