The sixth form is in London and is really competitive, mocks somewhat matter for me but last years mocks have already given me pretty good predictions, but could be higher

All grades 7-9, and 8/9 in the subjects you want to do for a level.

I didn't get 8/9's in most of my mocks. However, If I get this at GCSE will I still have a good chance in getting in?

8/9's across the board should get you into practically any sixth form, it depends if they value mocks and give conditional offers or what

It will vary from school to school. Your predictions are more important for the offer of a place than your mocks.

What did they say on the Open evening?

Aren't predictions your mock results ? They said you need 8's across the board in your mocks which I didn't get. Will I still have a chance if I get all 8/9's on results day? What is the probability as it's a very high up school

Sometimes predictions are based on your mocks, sometimes not it depends on your school. For most sixth forms that you apply to, mock grades are used as predictions and those determine if the school will offer you a place. Sometimes they will say yes, you can come regardless of the grades you get on results day - or they might give you specific requirements that you must meet on results day as well as the general entry requirements

Most schools will also allow you, upon request, to increase your predictions so you're more likely to get a place but then again some don't want you to leave at all

A grammar school will set grade targets; they won;t take you regardless of results. Also as it's likely to be over-subscribed they can take the highest qualified students.

The idea is to revise for mocks like it's your actual GCSE
