predicted a grade 2-2 in science and a 2 in maths

is there any way I could get a 5 in each at GCSE so I can go on to a levels, or is it too late in your opinion?

It's not too late. I went from getting 3s and 4s in maths and triple science at the end of year 10 to getting 6s 7s and 8s. I just revised every day and got my bf to tutor me for maths. I recommend using Seneca, mymaths, and quizlet. Ask your teacher for practise papers to learn exam technique and how the questions will be structured. Make sure you know your science practicals well.

Hi, don’t let predicted grades get you down. Work really hard and prove your teachers wrong. You can always study at another college or sixth form if you get the grades you want! Good luck

The practicals should be in the textbook but they are definitely on Seneca, at least for whatever exam board I was with.

How have your mocks been? have you been a hard working student?
Yes you can sort it out if you improve your study method, organisation and effort. You probably need a 6 for A level. Rather than worry about it take action that helps to improving grades.

Just do well in the mocks. Most places judge on how you actually performed. Free resources I suggest are:
Physics and Maths tutor
Dr Frost Maths
Free Science Lessons
Mr Bruff
There are many other resources if you do some searching for yourself.

Predicted grades mean nothing, and do not determine what grades you'll get on results day in the slightest. I was predicted a 6 in maths and got a 9, and predicted 4 in sciences and I got 7s. (I sat WJEC, so I got letter grades, so take the conversion with a pinch of salt.)
Schools often set predicted grades way lower than they actually expect you to get because it looks better in their files. A student predicted a 2 who actually ends up getting a 7 looks like an incredible over-achiever, whereas someone who was predicted a 7 and gets a 7 looks average.
It's all about government statistics, unfortunately.

i am starting them today but no i have been a terrible student, i have started over the past month to take it seriously so the teachers said my mocks this month might nor reflect much improvement but by the time january ones come it will really start to show

there are some places where i can get in with a 5, so i would have to get the top 5 that's the highest on foundation

thank you yeah i'm going to work hard

I think everyone else has covered everything in the sense that you definitely shouldn't let it get you down. Only other advice I have is talk to your teachers and ask them why they gave you what they did. I think this is really importsnt
