    So today I found out that I am targeted CCC in myA levels. I want to persue law at University, and obviously I need As and Bs for that. In my GCSE's I achieved 1A*, 4As, 1B, 3Cs and an E (please don't mention this haha), and in my A level subjects, I achieved an A* and two As, so why am I targeted so low? I know people who did worse than me in their GCSE's in general, and who got lower in a subject than me, who are targeted higher, why is this? Just seems quite strange, I thought I'd be targeted Bs, and am aiming to achieve As. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you for reading.

    Its only predicted grades, so it'll change throughout the year. They base it on your yr6 SATs, GCSE results, work ethics and other ridiculous criteria (well, this were what my two previous sixth form did).

    Just try to get good grades this yr and be predicted higher.

    Sounds odd. Maybe bring it up to someone and see what they say?

    I dont know about colleges, but my secondary school took our families achieved grades into account when predicted our grades. My dads qualifications are foreign and my mum dropped out at 14 so naturally my predicted grades are usually very low. I think my college does it based on small quizzes taken throughout the year. Every body of education does it differently I guess

    Wow, their criteria for predicting grades really are terrible.

    I'm considering it, but I'm afraid that if I do they'll think I'm being an arrogant little arse haha.

    Are these target grades or predicted grades?

    These can be different things and if so, only the latter matter. (hehe that rhymes)

    They say target grades, not predicted.
