Did everyone else's school tell them their predicted grades?

Just wondering, because my school never actually did.

Mine didn't (although if I reeeeeeeeeeeeeealy wanted to know they probably would have told me). I ended up seeing them anyway though so meh.

Four As. Bad prediction since I'm dropping a subject
You can ask to see your reference of course, I think they may have your predicted grades there.

Everyone was told what they were going to be predicted at my school, just so that no-one applied to a uni that was out of their league.

They told me before i went to my first interview. I even got a sneak peek at my reference. It was a bit embarasing to read what they said about me really.

You've actually got a right under the Data Protection Act to see any information about you that is passed from one place to another. That includes your UCAS reference and predicted grades - so, provided you ask (in writing if necessary), they have to give them to you.

The school gave me mine, albeit reluctantly. And if I hadn't been applying to Cambridge, it wouldn't have been nearly as glowing. =D

Actually you have the right to view (and update if not accurate) any information stored about yourself (not just transfered), they have the obligation to process the data fairly and for reasonable means. It should only be kept for a reasonable length of time. With regard to the transfer of data, they are only allowed to do so within the european 'free-trade' zone without specialist legal agreements (for example to get data to the US), they should make it clear they are going to. The data controller can reasonably charge you £10 to cover the cost of providing you with your data.

In reality the data protection commission or the information commission or whatever they call it these days are fairly ineffectual at helping individuals. The time I did try and contact them about an issue they didn't even return my enquiry. I am not impressed.
