Today, I got my predicted grades back for UCAS and I was delighted that I got really good results (A* in Biology, A's in Film Studies and Music Technology); Especially as most people I know didn’t do as well (C's and D's). The issue now is as I want to do rather Film or Music production at Uni, my entire family is pushing me to ask my teachers to make the A's into A*s, and while it’s true that I still got really good results in my mocks for those subjects (93% in Music Tech and 82% in Film studies) and would probably be and A* in actual exams, I fell like it’s really pretentious to ask for higher grades when the grades I got were still really good; moreover, I have a good relationship with all my teachers and I don’t want to ruin that by bugging them to do this. What should I do?

i wouldn't listen to your family, if you're happy with your predicted grades then don't ask them to be changed.

It really depends on what a typical offer for the course you want to do is, so do your research. If you need an A* in either Film Studies in Music Tech (or you need more than one A* in total) to do the course you want then explain this to your teachers and, given your mock scores, they will probably oblige. If you only need an A (or, even better, a B) then don't fret it.
