Hi everyone,

I have just got my predicted grades (I still have two more to go my History and Extended project) I am looking to study History at University and two of my top choices have the entry requirements of 3A's, with the hope that I get this grade predicted in History, I am not sure if I will due to being predicted a B in Sociology. I gained a low B in the exam but I know I can get an A if I work hard, I don't believe this is a true reflection of my abilities, as I received ABBB at AS, and could instead tried a lot harder and was expecting lower results. Is there anything I can do that will make him predict me an A, I can't stop worrying about it at is I have to hand in my application soon.



Thanks

I'm afraid generally convincing a teacher to change your predicted grade wont work or do much good.

Sorry but I dont think its fair for a teacher to purely base your prediction upon an exam result which doesn't count and two they said they would also take into account my grades across the year, in which they had predicted me an A beforehand, so I don't think it's that far of a stress, they told us to treat it like a mock and now they are basing it purely against one grade. I am convinced I can get an A... What makes you say this?

your predicted grade doesn't really matter, it's the result you should focus on.

I see that, otherwise I wouldn't be worrying. But it sort of does if I need to secure a place at the University I want to go to.

It seems so. As before the exam I was predicted an A, my other teacher (who has now left) thought I was even capable of gaining an A*.

Mock exams can often be used as one thing to predict grades with, in their eyes "treating it like a mock" may have meant they wanted you to use it as a good practice opportunity to get yourself that A.

It's the only thing that they have in exam conditions to go off, most people would do better in class work so they couldn't just go off that and with a2 work considered more difficult could just be concerned that you'd drop to a B in the real exam.
