How do they predict your predicted grade and do you use these to apply for uni?

By looking at your standard of work over the year or so. Yes they are used to apply to uni (otherwise they'd have no idea whether or no you're likely to meet the requirements).

Well apparently you get two sets of predicted grades. First you get the ones from your teacher which you use to apply to university, and those (at my school at least) were decided from your general standard of work throughout the year, and a prediction of the best you could do on a good day. My IB coordinator said that they also tend to be based on what you get for your summer exams in IB 1. The second set of predicted grades (which I don't think you find out, but I'd say are probably pretty similar to the first set, but probably lower) are ones made in February or March of IB2 and are sent to the IBO. The reason for this is because if a student gets a 3 or 4 in a subject they were predicted a 7 in, they may look over the exam once again just to make sure.

Do you use your PREDICTED grades to apply for university or the ACTUAL grades? And if it is the predicted ones, isn't that unfair! What if you are smart but the teacher hates you or something?

you use the predicted ones. and yes, it is unfair... but just live with it... only makes it worse if u try and talk the teacher about the grades. happened to me... =(

and the final exam grades is the most important, and that has nothing to do with the teachers, so thats good...
