    Seems a bit weird to be studying for 10 GCSEs when it means her predicted grades end up low. Surely dropping, say, Geography and Graphics, would mean a better chance of Maths/Eng ending up at C or above?
    Ok I will tell her that.

    If she were to get these then it would be quite bad, however a lot of people are non-academic and can be successful in other field. Predictions, in my experience, largely wrong. I was predicted Bs, Cs and Ds for GCSE, but came out with A*A*AAABBBBCD, with the C and D being accredited for by a severe lack of coursework. Again at AS I was predicted Cdd, but got Abc, now someones finally decided to take me seriously and my final A2 predictions are AAAAac(which I spose is actually more "oh dear, not geting that high!"). Basically if your sister did get those grades, they are below average, but there are other things other than A Levels that she could do with those grades and I expect she'll find herself achieving higher anyway,

    Well I wouldn't say their bad. If she concertrates and pay full attention in class and stuff then she could acutally gets C's and B's if she tries hard enough.. That's what all my predicted grade look like. My predicted are,

    English Language - C
    Maths D
    Double Science DD
    IT D
    Hist D
    Business D
    French D
    Art D
    RE - E
    PE - C

    But so far in my tests and mock exams and courseworks I've been getting B's .. So Your sister results are similar to mine. If she wants to talk to anyone she can always ( or you can ) PM me.

    "Are my sister predicted grades bad?" - They're appalling! She needs to get working.
