    All my AS levels don't count towards the A level because they're linear now. Supposing that I get BCC in the AS grades; would it be hard to persuade my teachers to predict me a B for A2 which is in the following year? My target grade for AS were D's, and I've never got a D in any of my homeworks or assessments showing that I'm clearly working above my target grade and that they wrongly predicted me such a low target grade( I found it insulting). Anyway, seeing as these grades don't count towards the A level if can't be unthinkable to predict me 1 grade above. Also, I know my college's policy can predict 1 grade above because I have friends in the year above; however she said that for one of her subjects she got a C in AS and her teacher only predicted her C but I don't think she asked to be predicted higher. All my teachers know I put a lot of effort into anything I do, so they can't exactly say ' sorry we don't think you have the worth ethic to achieve a B' seeing I go to a college it's very independent work, so to even get a C at AS shows i'm capable of working Independantly. Seeing that I would've exceeded my target grade this year, would encourage them to predict me one grade above this time??

    Firstly, it wasn't your teacher's fault that you were predicted D's - there is a calculation called a G-Score that works those out. I was predicted CCD :/ Realistically the exams you're taking now represent your performance so they should at least be a factor in your A2 predictions. However if you're close to the next grade (say you were 5ums off a B in the exam) , or your performance in the exam was shockingly bad compared to what you normally produce in class (and I mean mocks, not homework grades where you use notes etc) there is no reason why they cannot predict you a B. If your friend got a low C that may have been why.

    For example, I got ABC but the B was 2UMS off an A and the C was 2UMS off a B so for A2/UCAS I was predicted AAB. These aren't linear though.

    Best of luck

    Thank you! Yeah, so I'm not really sure now whether it matters how many UMS you were off from a B etc, but it probably does because the AS are pretty much the same as previous years; but it just doesn't count towards the A level, I would be over the moon if I for ABC for AS, because then I stand a good chance of being predicted ABB which is what my first choice uni requires
