I think target grades for GCSE go off your year 6 SATS results. Schools have to use this because that is how they get graded on the school league tables. If you got 5s and 6s in year 6 then came out with Cs this shows up on the league tables that you didn't make expected progress so it's the school's fault.

Pfft, in my opinion predicted grades suck. I was always predicted low Cs (C-) and I came out of my GCSEs with As and Bs. I couldn't agree more with what you said, I hate it when I see people discouraged from trying harder because they achieved their target grade which was a C. 😞
Hi I’ve got same target of low C and I’m not sure if i can get into collage A level can you give me some adivice

Teachers have become notorious for setting targets well below student expectations, many may perceive this reality within the education system to be demotivating but in actual fact this can be of great benefit.

Seeing a solid set of flat results, which teachers devise with the conviction that you're actual results will mirror their predictions. This viewing acts as a jolt of awakening, which can urge students to contradict the set of grades which are truly not desired. Now an increasing number of students graduate from Yr11 with a GCSE results sheet far more superior than the teacher-imagined one.

Don't suck up to your predicted/target grades. FIGHT them.

They affect what college we can get into. I'm literally not able to get anywhere good because of that.
