    Are predictions made from GCSE results and GCSE point score and that mildly accurate for most or mostly inaccurate and varied? I’m asking because I’m disappointed with my minimum predicted grades and want higher

    In my experience they don’t really mean anything. Your results really depend on how much work you put in I was predicted BBBBC and got AAAAA so don’t get too caught up on them. Good Luck.

    Well it assumes an average level of progression from GCSE to AS. It's accurate for most people.

    There'll always be people who do better or do worse.

    The prediction is there mostly for the school. They know that if you're achieving your predicted grade throughout the year then it means you're progressing, working and the school is doing a good job. However you should really be setting your own target and working towards that.
