    so, i just got my report card back with my predicted grades on it (year 12), and im predicted BBC, which im not entirely happy with. My standard of work is more like high B's-A's, so im wondering, is it even possible for me to get A's in the summer if I'm predicted C's, or is that is just too optimistic? and what do predicted grades go off, is it GCSE's grade?

    Well they should go off your AS results, GCSEs are pretty useless indicators of A-level performance, so a bit surprised you have them already. If you think your standard of work is A/B, then there nothing stopping you from getting it.

    yeah i guess that's true. well all my essay practices are at least a high B nearly all the time so i guess the predicted grades were more a confidence knock than anything if that makes sense

    Are you due to get AS level results in the summer? If so, they might get altered. I was given provisional predicted grades this time last year, and then they changed a little bit after i got my AS results.

    How did you do at AS in january that will give you some indication ? Anyway target grades are used as a marketing tool by colleges in order to say there students overachieve . Don't let it put you off for going for a higher grade , it comes down to effort . Mine changed dramatically from BCCD at AS to ABB after my fist year

    If you do well in your AS exams then they won't have much choice but to put them up

    Who cares, your AS predictions don't count for anything.

    Your A2 predictions will be based off actual AS level results, so as long as you do well in that you can get good predictions when it really counts.

    Unis (I believe) care more about AS results than predictions anyway, because predictions vary from school to school - the same guy could be predicted A*A*A* in one school and AAA in another.
