    Yeah I think that's true, I think the teacher's don't want to give students false hope! Just do your best and your own way and ignore the predicted grades

    I was underestimated in all 12 of my initial predicted grades. I was overestimated in 5 of my amended predicted grades.

    All in all, they're a rough guideline. Give or take two grades either way.

    Hey, sorry! But really - if you try hard enough, anything can be an opportunity! :rolleyes: Though, if you look at everyone's sigs it can give you enough "oh crap I'm failing in comparison to them"s to really deflate yours a bit...

    I was predicted 13A*s and achieved 12A*s 1A, so fairly accurate in my school, as most people achieved around what they were predicted

    GCSE's predictions can sometimes be accurate but it mostly depends on yourself. If your willing to prove your teachers wrong, and work really hard then you can most defientely get all A*s and A's. For example i was predicted a C in RE but got an A* in my mocks. so it really depends on what you do

    My Year 10 Predicted Grades - Autumn to Spring Term

    Maths - C to B
    English (Lit & Lan) - B (however, this is not really my current level but the predicted grade for my overall grade at the end of year)
    Science (Double Award) - C to B
    IT - B
    R.E (Short) - C
    R.E (Full) - C to A
    Modern World History - B
    Graphics - B
    German - C

    I'd say it's pretty accurate but I know my own grade better as I monitor my progress accurately with - + added.

    I'd say I am currently at:

    Maths - C+/B-
    English (Lit & Lan) - C+/B-
    Science (Double Award) - B+/A-
    IT - B+/A-
    R.E (Short) - B+/A-
    R.E (Full) - A+/A*
    Modern World History - B+/A-
    Graphics - C+/B-
    German - C+/B-

    Not the best of grades. I do work hard and complete all my cwk/hwk but I don't revise for exams or anything. I plan to work my arse off during the summer holiday's to prove some of those teachers wrong.

    Luckily, I only got 3 science exams, 1 graphics exam and 1 german exam this summer.

    This is extremely subjective. The accuracy is all down to the teachers and the student's academic skill level.

    I don't want to predict.. The best I'm betting at is A* for Maths - can't be too sure about any other subjects, but I will be SO damn pissed if they don't give me A* for art because not only did I hand draw everything myself (everyone else traced more or less), I basically had to sacrifice my whole Easter holiday at school doing those prep sheets!

    And English...I will never understand it. my teacher goes on about how great this person's essays are and I read them, and I think they're BS. I guess it really comes up to the examiner's taste?!

    Just wondering. Mine are starting to flow in atm:eek: , so how accurate do you think they are?:confused: Are they normally too optimistic:p: - higher than what you actually get - or worse? How did your predicted grades differ from your actual grades? Any current year 10s - mind sharing what your predicted grades are?:cool:
    to be hoenst not very. usuallye veryone always gets a lot higher than expected FACT

    I was predicted 2A* 8A's and a B and Im currently in Year 10 which I would be thrilled at the end of the day, but all the subjects have been decided by the mark we got in our end of Year 9 Exams which i dossed of and practically put in any effort.

    I cant see what use predicted grades are tbh apart from either getting hopes up and adding to compleciency or devestating pupils and making them think they're thick.
