    Well it is going to help in the long run since you'l get more offers lol.



    Or it can go the opposite. Get predicted low grades. Can't apply anywhere because low predicted grades. End up achieving super high grades and ye. You get the picture.
    that scenario is much less likely. for most people their AS grades are a good show of what they will end up with

    predicted grades are always extremely inaccurate. They use some weird algorithms. My predicted grades were NEVER the same as my actual grades. They're pretty meaningless.

    think about it.
    they are predictions on your previous exams so theyre not gonna be bang on but they're gonna in the right area. you can't say they are categorically always extremely inaccurate.
    they're not meaningless. how else would we decide who gets uni offers if we didn;t have predicted grades??

    I always got near 100% since SATs all the way up to Alevel and still got predicted Ds all the time. I was told by teachers that the grades are predicted based on where you live which is why they were so wrong. So ye pretty meaningless lol.

    Well I'm not the problem solver. Someone who works in the education department can solve that. But ye my teachers did change all my predicted grades to As before we sent off the UCAS appilcations to make em look better. They did it for everyone. It's a silly system and everyone knows it.

    I'd recommend talking to your careers adviser or whoever sends off your UCAS if your teachers aren't willing or it's too late for them to do anything.

    I got at least one of my grades changed from a B to an A.

    If I hadn't, I don't think I would have got an offer from the University I'm in now as I wouldn't have met the entry requirements!
