    I am retaking my A2 exams as I did not do as well as I hoped. This means to apply to uni I need to do UCAS again but my sixth form are refusing to giving me predicted grades as they are no longer teaching me. What do i do??

    That's ridiculous on their part - I'd definitely advise you to speak to each of your individual subject teachers and tell them to include a prediction in their reference

    If that doesn't work out, speak to the department that deals with ucas and ask them for advice on how you can get your predicted grades included on your ucas application

    I have spoken to them, last year I was predicted AAA my teachers were really shocked with my grades and I don't expect those predictions but they all said the same thing that as they don't teach me they can't predict my grades.

    The department is the my coach who's already told me no

    It's understandable, they can't make predictions if they are no longer teaching you.

    Maybe ask UCAS?

    You will need someone to provide a reference too.

    If you are taking your resits at your old school then really they should be your reference and provide predictions. They can always caveat the prediction by saying you are self-teaching.
