    Well done!
    Well I've been predicted A* for most, but after my performances in my exams I know I'm not gonna get them. In fact, I think I'm gonna be dissapointed in a few things, but relieved in a few others. Biology and English Language. Bitterly dissapointed me thinks.

    predicted 1A*/A, 9A's, 2B's.

    i got 6A*'s, 5A's, 1B!

    The teachers would just predict lower grades because they didnt want thier necks on the line if alot of us didnt get the grades, and also they didnt think i would get any A*'s.

    Ah well, i showed em! Got the highest in my school too!
    Wow, well done! Teachers, what do they know

    The whole point of predictions is to scare you. In my school, predicted grades are those from the mocks...and the mocks are harder than real exams. Why do you think they are called mocks? To be nice to you or to mock your achievement?

    What can we do but wait? We may as well enjoy the Summer and freedom ahead of us rather than worrying about other people's expectations of us.

    yep, sleep a lot. but do lots of other stuff too! i think that you get much higher in the end because your teachers predict grades based on mock exams and class effort... both of which arent too high... but when you really try, and revise, you do much better...

    Im pretty much on track to get my predicted grades, they changed them after we got our mock results so they're pretty up to date.

    Dont worry about them seriously!
    enjoy your holidays while you've got them, because you'll have to wait another two years to have holidays like the ones after your GCSE's!
    And it's likely you'll end up getting grades better than you thought. I think the examiners were much nicer than the teachers at my school when it came to marking, you guys will be arite, and will proabably beat me too!

    If the teachers predict lower grades than you're expecting, don't worry! It just means that if you mess up the exam, they won't be accountable, as they can say: 'Well, I know ---- got a B, even though his/her previous work was good enough to get an A*, but I did predict him/her a C'...
