    Surely a better title to the thread should be "How are predicted grades given"?

    If you mean your AS predicitons, then they are given going off your GCSE grades, well at least mine were. A teacher just typed them all into her computer, clicked a few buttons and said all my predicited grades were A's :eek: .

    But if you mean your A2 predictions, then probably off your AS grades, and how well you've worked throughout the year.

    Why are you suprised you were predicted all A's?:rolleyes:

    Sexual favours and by generally pestering them to raise them. I managed to get AAA predictions just by making an Oxford application.

    Predicted grades are based upon a number of things. For example, your teacher should take into account your GCSE points score, your class-based test scores, and how hard you work in class into account. However, some teachers base their predicted grades upon how much they like you - silly I know:rolleyes::p:

    I said mine will be ABB and i got told stop be silly, its AAA. My teachers seem to use in order AS+how you have worked through the year+your past attidude+your present attitude+(how much they like you i bet... lol:p:) and most i know think relying on GCSE's is stupid and unproven. I agree, i know plenty who have amazing GCSE's and end up being mediocre in A levels and visa versa. :rolleyes:

    :p: Lucky you! I have the pleasure of entirely new teachers for English this year, and the notoriously strict hag included in those, so if I'm going to get my predicted grades as AAA, I'm going to have to try and prove to the old bint I'm a genius:p: Joy!:p:

    Well, I'm not entirely sure, but I think that your predicted grades for AS tend to be based on your performance in GCSEs - however, I don't think this is necessarily a very fair or accurate indication, as you're bound to be studying things that interest you and most likely subjects that you're good at... or, in some cases, you might have chosen options you've never studied before.
    So I really wouldn't worry about predicted grades; I'm not going to say that they're meaningless, but it's really about an individual and the amount of work/effort they put in, and not about what's deemed to be the threshold of their ability from previous examinations.
    For example, I'd be a bit annoyed if my C in Maths lowered my overall predictions for subjects such as English and History - it wouldn't make any sense whatsoever, as they're not even in the slightest way related!
    Ideally, they'll give us our predicted grades after we've produced some of our first pieces of work for our chosen subjects, but even if this isn't so... as long as we set ourselves our own personal, realistic targets there's no need to fret about the expectations of others.
    Good Luck!
