    I've just sat my AS Exams, and to be honest.. I don't think I've done as well as I'd first hoped. If not, then of course I will retake.
    Now I'm starting to worry about my University applications for predicted grades. I think I'm going to get CCC rather than BBB or ABB which I had hoped for.
    Do teachers usually go on your AS results? Or do they think over the period of time they have been teaching you? Do they consult you in anyway?


    they go for wat they think ull get and i got told that at my school if ur on the boundary say of A/B then they put A, but unis also see ur as grades and u cant decline them anymore

    i think they will take into account your resits and speak to you about how you think you will do and if so what predicted grade would be realistically achievable

    Completely subjective I'm afraid, but most of my mates managed to persuade their teachers to up their predictions, with promises of hard work and extra studying! Just depends what your teacher's like.
