    Hi, so I'm doing my January mocks right now (year 12), and from what I understand, my teachers will basing our predicted grades on the result. I know for a fact I've done very badly on them, and I'm planning on going to my teachers to find out if there's a way I can improve my predicted grades in any way by doing some extra work. But, there is of course a chance that won't work. My question is, how much do predicted grades affect uni offers? I've heard quite a lot, but say I get Ds and Cs on my predicted grades and don't get any offers but I end up meeting the entry requirements in my A levels next year? Does that mean I can only apply through clearing?
    Also, if anyone has any tips on how to improve my predicted grades even with crap mock grades, please let me know I've had a bit of a rough year, and I never want to use that as an excuse, but the point is I know I can do a lot better, and I don't think these grades will be a good representation of what I'm actually capable of.

    I'll only be sitting an AS exam in maths- all of my other courses only require an A level exam at the end of y13 now that A levels have changed. But there will be the usual internal end of years exams.

    Then your teachers can only predicted your grades according to the mocks you've done. This will affect your university choices. Incase your acutal grades come out better, you'll have to go through adjustment.
