Can bad predicted grades cause a college to reject you? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    My predicted grade for maths is a D which i think is an unfair reflection of my ability because my performance was hindered by having a pretty bad cold during the mock exams. I want to study physics and maths at A level and i need to achieve at least a B in maths to follow this path. I am sure that with revision and good health i could get a B in maths and maybe even an A. I have a good predicted grade for physics but i am just unsure of what affect this will have on my chances of being accepted into college. Am i worrying for nothing or am i ****ed?

    you shouldn't worry too much about it, the prediction went to university will be dependent on your mock grades, what the teacher believes you are worth and also your summer exam grades, the predictions tend to be 1 grade higher.
    You should aim to get a high grade during summer exams, to show how determined you are.
    Get a good grades and your predictions will be good.
    Don't forget to also get good grades on class tests, homework as it will affect it
