do they actually matter when applying to sixth forms because mine are B's/C's when I know I can get better than those grades in the actual exam.

Yeah predicted do matter at the moment when deciding which courses. However when you get your actual gcse results these can change and you can change courses if you did better or worse than expected XD

haha i think not!

predicted grades are just what they THINK you'll get in the actual exam. however, this is often far from accurate coz students (like me :innocent:) tend to just hang about and yolo all the mocks until they realize....UH OH. it's the real thing this time round. can't afford to screw up.

so yup! as long as you work hard and put in the effort, you could change your grade from like a C to A*. it's not impossible. i'll be taking my exams as well this year, best of luck!

Possibly when applying for 6th forms but generally you don't need amazing predictions to get a place/interview. For example the grammar schools near me asked for at least 4 As and 2 Bs. In terms of actual results, my predictions were 7 A's and 3 B's and I ended up with 10 A's.

I wouldn't have mattered they did particularly for GCSE's. Certainly not as much as they do for Uni.

They're only really looked at if you're applying to different Sixth Forms as some like to place a lot of emphasis on them. If they reject you based on your predicted grades and you end up doing considerably better than those, you can always appeal their decision on results day.
