    Recently year 11s such as myself have been applying to sixth forms. Now These sixth forms look at your predicted grades to see where you stand and thats an issue. Currently I am applying to St doms whom only take the best and with my results that should be the case however my school who want to keep me in their sixth form lowered down my grades intentionally even though I have recieved an A* in all of my exams.

    What the F88K do I cant just go to my teacher and demand they raise my grades. Any help?

    You should probably go and see your teacher and discuss the reasons for them giving you that grade. Most teachers will understand that you need good predicted grades in order to apply to sixth forms. If your teacher doesn't think that your predicted grades should be all A*s (even if you've had those grades before) then ask them why.

    Normally exams are quite a good way of seeing what level someone's working at so if you've proven that you're working at a higher level than they think you are, they should probably raise your grades if you ask them about it.
