Do sixth form often ask for mock results or do they ask for predicted grades cause i didn't get as high grades in my mock results so do you think that could prevent me from getting into my desired sixth form

Mocks can sometimes determine your placement, however if you make the grades in the real exams then they will not usually matter. They look at your mock results if you fall slightly short of the grades you wished to achieve on results day.

Usually, your predictions are based on your mock results (since those are the most accurate exams to that date). Your predictions shouldn't be lower than what you achieved in mocks and if you have an off-exam (let's say a C), but score A's in informal tests, they will more likely predict you an A (or a 7 since the new GCSEs >_> ).

It could prevent you from receiving an initial offer but I think most days now, sixth forms (and uni's for that matter (clearing)) will allow you to reapply when you have your results, but the requirements tend to be slightly higher and the spaces are far more limited.
