of university applicants achieve the grades their teachers predict for them
Research has found that 75%

had done better than predicted.
The UCU is now calling for the university admissions system to allow students to apply with their firm results
and not predictions that are "poor guestimates"

Obviously predictions can't be 100% right every time, but were you shocked by these statistics?
Have you ever been disheartened by a grade you've received because your prediction was so overly optimistic?
Do you think you will achieve or exceed your predicted A level grades?
