# AS Level Predictions watch

1. How do they predict AS level targets?

If I was to get an array of As and A*s at GCSE what would I expect to be predicted at AS?

It depends on the college. Most give each grade you get at GCSE a numerical value, add it up and divide by the number of GCSEs to get an average. They then factor it up or down dependent on the difficulty of the course. So your average could be a B but if the course is difficult they would lower it to a C or vice versa.
If you get an array of As and A*s at GCSEs, most likelihood you'd be predicted B's and A's dependent on the courses.
It is not an accurate measure, it is a rough prediction at best.
Hope it helps.
3. Your school will probably predict you AAAA-AABB. However, GCSEs are an unreliable indicator and it won't really matter until A2. Try your best, and it'll become apparent what you're capable of as you pass through the year.
4. My school did it as calculating our average GCSE point score and then deducted a grade. So my average for GCSE was A so I was predicted BBBB. However once you get into your alevels they may change it based on how well you're doing - mine changed from that to ABB to AAA so it just depends!!
Hope that helps
Good luck!
