    My predicted grades are rly bad (6/7) and I’ve been getting higher than that, but on my AP my teachers will only put 6/7 and no higher!! It’s rly annoying me!! And I’m going to have to show my college these predicted grades!! Also, you know your a level predicted grades, are they based on your SATs or GCSE grades? Cos if they’re based on sats then that’s stupid cos I did bad in them hence my low target grades.

    Target grades are normally determined using GCSE results. Predicted grades are set much later and are normally based on mocks as well as general performance. These are the grades that are used on your university application. Many people confuse the two.

    target grades are dumb, clever employers will look past your "targets" and "predictions" if you actually do better than them

    well, all employers. Once you've done your A-levels, your predictions and targets are basically tossed away. Though A-level predictions will influence uni applications. (because you won't have actually achieved grades yet)

    Oh wow.... guess it’s the final result that matters the most. Also r your target grades based on your actual gcse grades?

    yea agreed, don't listen to your teachers when they underestimate your ability and label your intelligance as a grade. And no sats wont mean anything at all in a level or gcse and your gcse grades will likely give you targets for a levels depending if you move school or not

    No, your minimum expected grades are.

    Your target grades are decided by mock exams/classwork, and are set by your teacher.
