I know I’ve flopped all my a level exams. Not because I haven’t revised - I did. But I burnt out last month to a point where I have lost motivation. My plan is to take a gap year and retake.

My question is: when you reapply through UCAS, Do your teachers use your real A level grades to predict or do they keep the predicted grades they originally gave you?

For example, I was originally predicted ABB.
If (for example) I achieve BCD on results day, Does that mean they will predict me lower grades when I reapply?

Because i want to change my course to Psychology which Means I need at least AAA. I don’t want my real a Levels to hinder my re applying process because I know I can achieve them.

Any advice?
Up to your referee. They cna take your A level actual grades into account or they cna accept you burnt out and are capable of more.

You will have to declare the A level grades you achieve this year on your new UCAS form so the unis will see what you got this year. However, in their reference, your referee could stress that you had problems with stress and are capable of achieving more.
