Do AS predicted grades matter?

My AS are low and I'm capable of getting much higher as I have proven already in my biology exam.

Will unis care about AS Predicted grades?

Universities will not know what your AS predicted grades were but they will know about your predicted A2 grades (ie: the overall A level) which are determined by your teachers on the basis of what you get in your AS exams. If you surpass expectations in your AS exam results which come out in August then you will presumably be given predictions of equal or higher grades which will be shown to the universities.

However, a problem will lie if you were to be given low predicted grades for your final A2 year as these are what universities use to make their decisions. If you are not predicted the equal or above the minimum entry requirements for courses you apply to you will find yourself facing rejections.

As long as you are predicted high grades for your overall A levels then this is all the universities will see, along with your AS grades if your school certifies them. Your AS predictions are irrelevant.

Yes, this would be the straight forward way.

If you don't do as well as you hope in your AS exams you have the possibility of re-sitting them in Jan and June 2011 meaning your teachers can make your predicted grades on the basis of what they think you will get in the exams if you work to your full potential. Or alternatively, even if you decide not to resit many people do better in Year 13 than they do in Year 12 meaning your teacher may agree to predict you an A, for example, even if you got a B in the AS exam.

Once you've finished your AS exams start looking at universities and their entry requirements then you can see what you will need to be predicted
