    Mostly likely gcse grades but how do they do that if you have a mixed range of results?

    It's all computed generated, with some teacher input, and it's usually completely wrong. My predicted grades for example were BBC and I got A*BB. Just use it as a target and to push you to do even better! Best of luck for A-levels.

    I heard somewhere that an A at GCSE was a D at A level, but I'm usure about how reliable that is. However, predicted AS grades are usually completely wrong! I got ABBBBBCCCCC at GCSE so I was predicted CCCC at AS. In actual fact I ended up with ABBC. I only got a C in GCSE as biology, but I managed to also get a C in A level biology this year, whereas one of my classmates had an A at GCSE but ended up with an E. So yeah, it all depends on how much work you put in, predicted grades don't really count.

    Don't even pay attention to predicted grades, they will be very inaccurate considering you're doing fewer subjects now, its a very different type of learning. Our school used your top 8 GCSE results to give target grades, my top 8 were 3A* and 5B which gave me target grades of CCCC, even though the subjects I took I got A*s in (got AAAA so proved them wrong). Just focus on your work and your own goals.

    Possibly A's if you're taking the subject you got A*s in, and B's for the others depending on teacher input, but that's just how my sixth form did them...

    If you did 13 subjects and got those grades I'm sure you would be v lucky lol. You would be predicted something similar to that at A level basically
