    I got BBBC at AS, dropping one of the B's and need a AAA prediction. So how do I convince my teachers to predict me A's , especially chemistry in which I got a C.

    There's no clear answer to this. Show you've made progress (at my sixth form you'd take a mock test for that) and they'd usually be ok with predicting a grade higher. Your chemistry mark might be a bit more difficult to bump up to an A however.

    I know of one boy, who managed to convince his teachers to predict him AAA, however, he received his results yesterday and needless to say he did not get into his unis. If you really want your teachers to predict you higher you have to prove to them that you have the grit and ability to achieve those grades and work for them. Perhaps, achieve high marks in a mock test or unit test in class, to indicate that you have the ability. You could bully your teachers into giving them, or call in your parents, but remember that arguing for unachievable grades may not be sensible. Best wishes for the coming year though!!!
