    So, I know this sort of question is asked a lot here, but are my predicted grades really good?

    Predicted Grades:

    English Language: A
    English Literature: A
    Mathematics: A*
    Biology: A
    Chemistry:A
    Physics: A*
    History: A
    Music: A
    French: B
    ICT (CiDA): B (what a waste of time!)
    Religious Studies: B

    Taking into account that I go to a school with a pass rate of 43% A*-C inc. English and Maths, are these grades good or just above average?

    Also, anyone got any tips on how to ace the French listening and reading exams?

    Yes, they are really good! You should be proud, Taking into consideration most students will beat there predicted grades (with hard work) you are looking at gaining a large array of A*'s at the end of the year!

    Keep it up!

    They're really good and you can apply to schools like Henrietta Barnett, Saint Olaves and Dartford Grammar School for Boys with those grades. I would definitely advise doing that if you live 10 miles within any of those schools! Also, how can you have a B in CiDA? It's really easy and I got an A* in the website design exam

    Thank you! I'm only predicted a B for CiDA because we were forced to do it, and I haven't got any ability to design or create anything that looks any good! Also, is CiDA actually a GCSE, or is it just equivalent to a GCSE?

    It's equivalent to a GCSE HOWEVER my school, Dartford Grammar School for Boys, see it as an actual GCSE as well as most other schools. Seeing you have such good predicted grades, I'd take a look at this and apply for the best sixth forms in your area, the ones I listed are 2nd 4th and 8th http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education...e-schools.html

    Thanks. I already have an A* in maths, so I have that one in the bag already!
