Hey, we all get pedicted grades, which are sent off to the boards a few weeks before we take our exams. Do these actually impact what mark you get at all, or are they merely jsut a formality?

Only if for some reason you are un-able to sit the exam.

They don't affect your marks, no. If you're too ill to complete most of your exams then they may take predicted grades into account.

They shouldn't affect how it is marked!

But if you can't take the exam, because of illness/being strnaded on the moon (NOT I didn't feel too good illness) I think you get given your predicted grade.

And you have something to wave at the unis if you screw up an exam...

I wouldn't worry about your predicted gardes at all, it's only what you might get, not what you will get. Soon as you sit your exams your predicted grades don't matter. They are mainly there so you do better than your predicted grades.

According to a few of my teachers, schools have to fill them in to give principal examiners an idea of where to set the grade boundaries when the papers are marked. For example, there may have been 25% of people predicted to get As in a given paper, yet in correlation with previous years' grade boundaries, only 10% may have gotten them. This helps the exam boards (to a very small extent) see where the grade boundaries should lie. Also, if there's a huge gap with your grade in a particular paper (say you were predicted As in all your modules, but you came out with Us in some of them) the exam boards can pin point who you are and check that your exam has been marked in the correct way etc.
