    Hmmm, well say I meet the minimum requirments for the particular subject, I guess they'd predict you the lowest *good* pass, hence a C?:rolleyes:

    why would you want a prediction now then? You can't apply to uni's unless you already done your AS Levels and going on o A2's. That is unless your doing your AS & A2 this year:confused:

    I like predictions, as they provide you with a target, for which I aim to strive for!:rolleyes:

    Well there isn't much you can do now, but there is some stuff.

    Make sure you are teachers pet from the set go of returning to college/school. Turn up on time, be extra good, try and study up in preparation for your A2 classes and impress them with your knowledge in class. Always try and have a go at questions in class but be moderate with it. If you’re doing an essay based subject, you could do some essays now and hand them in to get marked. Inform them of your re-sit plans and show some active preparation around them. Engage with the teachers, in class and out, talking about the subject mainly and other stuff secondly.

    I kind of did this passively the whole year and it builds up a special 'teachers pet' relationship that has worked out well for me :p: , but i don't know how effective doing all this will be on your predicted grades now. However it’s all worth a try, you have nothing to lose.

    My politics teacher predicted someone last year a B after they got C at AS, they done resists and come A2 scrapped an A. A girl I personally knew got BBD at AS and got ABB at A2. So it all depends on you and how much you can convince your teacher, with supported reason and evidence. Some teachers I know don’t believe AS’s are the best or only way to make realistic predictions and have been proven right the hard way. Another ex A2 student I knew got predicted C for Business and ended up getting an A, his University offers suffered as a consequence.

    i think usually a prediction from GCSE to AS is 1 grade lower.

    If you work harder than you did, you should manage to beat them. Its all about motivating yourself.

    And neither do you it seems - Put the work in you can get A's/B's- but if you think you can't or won't do it, then you'll give up, and get bad grades. Just forget about your GCSE results, they don't matter. predictions don't matter - they aren't the be all and end all of a UCAS application. Just think about the future, study hard, if you don't understand anything ask - its the best way to achieving good grades.

    No it doesn't. I was predicted a C/D for Business and received an A at AS. It all depends on how you take it. Some people take the prediction negatively and become a self-full filling prophecy, while others become a self defeating prophecy and rebel, have 'I’ll show you' attitude. As long as you know what you are capable of, that is all what matters at your stage.

    For some reason I feel that gcse are harder than AS levels. Maybe its because we do less lessons or we've matured more eitherway if your gcse grades are better than your AS predictions then don't worry and just prove your teachers wrong.
