    Target grades are a load of nonsense and should be ignored. Don't take them to heart and if anything to try to prove them wrong.

    Are you in year 12? If you are - ignore them completely, GCSE's are no indication of how well you'll do at A-Level. My predictions were CCD and I got ABC (7UMS off AAB). You CAN do much better than your predictions, don't limit yourself by believing in them.

    You will. Don't make the mistake of becoming a self fulfilling prophecy, give it your all and you're sorted X

    Last year my target was C,C,D,D but I came out with A,A,B,B

    Those don't have to be your grades, if you work and don't sit back grumbling about how you're doomed

    Don't worry about your predicted grades at AS - it's only at A2 that they matter.

    Do your best to prove your teachers wrong! I did with mine
