    Hi, I'm from Italy and I have already sent my application. City, university of London contacted me asking to arrange for my school to provide me with full details of the grades I am predicted to achieve in Italian Esame Di stato. The problem is that it is impossible to predict grades for it and this is also the reason why my referee did not include any predicted grades in my reference. What can I do?

    Write in whatever grade you predict yourself/need for the course. Afterwards, work hard and actually get those grades :lol: Or try to ask your teachers what they think you will get in each individual subject for which you will be sitting an exam, average that, and take that as your predicted grade overall.

    I think your school should just sent them a copy of the grades you have got over your high school career so far and they can go by that, I suppose. If you sat any mock exams, the university may be interested in them.

    So, should I just send them a copy of the grades of last year and explain them that it is impossible to predict grades for my exam? Or has my school to do that?

    I miei profe mi hanno dato i predicted grades senza problemi.. hanno fatto un calcolo guardando i crediti che ho preso negli ultimi due anni e vedendo come io stia andando quest'anno. spiega loro che ti servono per forza e di provare a darti un voto più vicino possibile a quello richiesto dalle uni a cui ti sei iscritta, sempre che ti sia possibile raggiungerlo.
    A che corso sei iscritta alla city? io giornalismo

    Oddio sei la prima persona italiana che conosco che si è iscritta ad un corso di giornalismo come me! Sono nel dramma perché appunto la City mi ha chiesto i predicted grades perché CREDO voglia farmi un'offera, ma la mia prof di inglese che mi ha fatto la referenza ha detto che non se la sentiva di azzardare anche i voti. Essendo una cosa necessaria però la convincerò a farlo. Comunque mi piacerebbe moltissimo scambiare qualche parola con te siccome sto cercando di entrare alla City per studiare giornalismo! (E, ribadisco, sei la prima che conosco aha )

    Hello Lucia, Giulia and everyone else. My son has also applied to several unis through UCAS last Jan and he received 2 conditional offers (condition being: Minimum IELTS score of 6.0 and obtain a certain minimum grade at the upcoming "Esame di Stato"). Another one of the Unis, however, emailed him asking predicted grades, I guess they want to pre filter out some students.
    I confirm that the italian high school my son is attending said they will NOT release any document predicting his grades. I sense they are just trying to stay clear of any legal issues but my research so far confirms this is the usual approach of italian High Schools.

    I have sent UCAS a post on this on their FB page, they are usually quick in replying. I'll try to share here the outcome.
