    Yeah but in the long run it won't help anyone. If he falls below those grades your school will suffer as the universities will know how much they inflate the predicted grades by. Likewise your friend is selling himself dreams. Not to say it can't be done however.

    I'd be very sceptical unless there was a very good reason [seriuos illness, death of a close family member] and GCSEs were all A*s.

    THere is no point making predictions students have no chance of making - unis know which schools over-predict.

    No admissions tutor is likely to believe that. :/ There's a reason most schools have a policy of never predicting more than one grade higher than what you got at AS: it gives them a bad reputation if their predictions prove to be far higher than what was actually achieved. I mean, if somebody was predicted AAA and ended up with A*AB, that can be written off as an honest mistake but predicting A*AA for somebody who got CEE at AS is pushing it over the edge.

    He should try anyway but he shouldn't be too surprised if universities don't take it seriously.
