There's more truth in this than most people tend to take from it. I was 'predicted' BBC and a B in EPQ. Should have seen my physics teachers face when I collected my results this August- two years of putting me down and telling me not to bother to aim for anything higher than a C and I walked out with an A* (higher than all his favourite students who he always had so much time to explain things to). That grade came from my own sheer determination and hard work.
I also got an A* in maths and A's in EPQ and English Literature. Regardless of your target grades assigned to you, make your own.

At the very beginning of the year, it’ll most likely be a B. Because A-Levels are based on how much work you put it, they can’t possibly know how you’ll do before you begin. Example:

History:
Student 1 - B at GCSE,predicted . C at A-Level, achieved an E
Student 2 - C at GCSE, predicted D at A-Level, achieved an A.

So, most begin on predicted targets that are one lower than they achieved at GCSE, but this will change.

Well predicted/target grades at the start of year 12 will mean very little. It's the mocks at the end of year 12 that will decide what your UCAS predicted grades are. If/when you get an A in your yr 12 mock, your school isn't going to say "well hang on a minute, you only got a 7 at GCSE, we'll predict you a B".
