    Well that makes no sense, because by that logic someone who got 241 scraping an A would be predicted a B, but someone who only just missed out on an A by getting, say 239, would be predicted an A.

    My school is different in predicting grades. I don't like it. I just have to believe what they do. I scraped a grade A at AS (83%), and I was predicted a grade B overall. I wanted to talk to the teacher about it, and they disagree with me getting an A overall at the end of A-level.

    O well. It doesn't matter. I can prove them wrong about my predicted grade. :p: I wanted to talk to the teacher about my predicted grade (I scrapped an A at AS (83%), and they disagree with me getting an A overall at the end of A-level, so I was predicted a grade B instead.

    Most people who only just scrape an A at AS will go down to a B at A2, since the work's harder. Without retakes, it's more than likely.

    Yeah. I guess that's the reason for my school for predicting A/A2-level grades then when students just scrape a grade at AS.

    I doesn't explain why they'd predict someone with a high B and A though.

    it sounds to me like trev has seen some students get predicted As with B grades whilst he has been predicted a B with his A grade. The thing is, that probably isn't a policy of the school because it wouldn't make sense. What's more likely is that either the teacher who predicted trev a B grade was more "strict" (i.e. a ****) whilst the person who was predicted an A had a more generous teacher, or possibly trev didn't impress the teacher as much as the other student throughout the year, leading to trev being predicted less than the other B grade student.

    I agree with you on that. I didn't do well in the exam (AVCE course by the way), and got a D in my exam while the coursework is a high A grade. The exam dragged me down to a low A at AS overall. The units I chosen are handable, but to the teacher it's not, so I think he predicted me a grade B.

    I'm fine with a predicted grade B. However, I know I could get a grade A overall at A2/A-level, as I have done well in the exam and the coursework this year. Going to prove that predicted grade wrong hopefully.
