    I was just wondering if predicted grades are based on anything else other than you AS-Levels? I only ask because I messed up my PSYA1 really badly on Monday and I've been on track for an A all year and have proof from marked work etc. Do teachers input to you predicted grades at all?

    At my school it was based off the AS results, but if you got a grade below how you've been performing all year, they'd bump it up...I think that's how it works in most places? So I'd say don't worry about it

    I'm pretty sure they do not bump it up.
    The school has the responsibility of goving you the most probable predicted grades based on your UMS. For an A* at A level you need 90% UMS overall. Therefore if you get only say 50% at AS which counts as 50% of your A level, you'd need to get 130% in your A2 to get an A*. Since that's impossible - they wouldn't predict the A*. They will pick the most reasonable grade which you have the best chance of getting so that on results day you won't be disappointed that you've not reached your predicted grades.
