    I'm getting my AS level results tomorrow and hoping for AAA, but I know I could get AAB/ABB and I'll be really disappointed. I'm now overthinking my exams which I previously thought went well, and now focussing on what I wasnt able to do. Is this normal, and do people often correctly predict their A level grades (provided they put the work in)?

    They're normally correct if I pass, and far off if I fail

    I think that I was on the boundary between an A and an A* for Maths and English Lit, so I personally wouldn't be confident at all in my predictions

    Depends on the subject tbh. For Maths and Science it's easier to predict because the markschemes tend to hit on the same points. For essay subjects I can imagine it being a lot harder, but I reckon you would have a general idea after the exam
