    Hello.

    Im currently doing my first year a level and will be sitting exams at the end of Year 13. We've been told that predicitions are important for Univerisites and therefore we need to work hard this year to get good predicted grades.

    My question is, since we are not doing AS this year, will the highest predicted grade we can get be A* or A?

    Thanks.

    The predicted grade you get will be for your UCAS application, the highest is an A* - I'm assuming you can get this by getting consistently high grades in homework, mock exams (which I presume you'll be having many of|), progress tests etc.

    Great thanks. Are there any offical mocks? Or are they all organized by your own school?

    Mocks are usually set by the school, but I presume they'd be frequent or at least happen more than once because teacher's will need to keep track of how well everyone is retaining the information.

    In my school, for example, the year 12s had a progress test/mock in November, mocks this month, mock reviews in February, another mock in March, and next year the teachers say that they intend to do weekly quizzes/tests and they will have mocks in November and January, and some subjects may choose to do another one just before they leave.
