    1. Will I be at an advantage if my teacher writes in my reference that I'm a private candidate and studying at home without teachers teaching me? (Or should I mention it in my personal statement?)

    2. I'm resitting me exams, teacher happy to predict me AAA, but last year I received DDD, will this be realistic and will universities not think it's odd to be predicted such high grades after failing miserably last year??

    Unis would know you've been over predicted which may be a disadvantage

    I got AAB at AS and it was a fight to get teachers to predict me AAA 😂 they probably would look a bit unrealistic ngl
