    As some of you may know, some exams have to be taken at the end of the 2 years. I am studying Law A level and at the end of this year, I will do the AS exam that contributes to my final grade. However, I am also studying History and Sociology. and those exams will be taken at the end of the 2 years.

    I think it depends on your sixth form/college. You might get 'internal exams' for History and Sociology at the end of year 12 (and most schools have mocks for first unit content round January too). Teachers will probably base your predicted grade on the marks you get in these internal exams AND your attitude to work, ability, marks on general assessments/ homeworks (throughout the year), etc.
    Teachers usually have a 'gut' feeling about the final grade each student will get (and they're usually right) , especially after teaching you and assessing your progress for a whole year
    They will most probably tell you what predicted grade they're going to put down for your UCAS in y13. Some teachers will negotiate and if you persuade them that you will work harder, they might even boost up that predicted grade if it's realistic
