So my school has suddenly decided that the grades we get on the end of Year 12 mocks will be our UCAS predicted grade - with no exceptions whatsoever.
I understand that these predictions need to be fair, but this is putting crazy pressure on everyone and the school isn’t even that reputable, it’s just a normal state school. I do one of my A levels at a selective entry grammar school and even they say they will predict you one higher than what you achieve in the mocks.
My other concern is that surely we will be sitting AS papers as mocks, and the highest grade you can get is an A, and a few of us need A*s on our prediction, and definitely deserve them - they’re basically giving people a reason to not try on in-class tests or in lesson, because apparently that has no bearing on your predicted grade.
I just feel really down and I’m so passionate about my subject, I feel like this might hold me back.

hmm that's odd , don't most school put PG at one grade higher (maybe two because of certain circumstances)
