I doubt they can entirely depend on mock results as most students may not have done mocks for certain subjects such as Level 3 BTECs therefore, I believe that students may receive their predicted grades and will be able to appeal if they’re not happy with the outcome

exactly. this would be outrageous. mocks are dodgy to base off of as some papers werent secure and people had already done them and gotten high grades. im gonna be upset if this is the case.

I just don’t see how they are going to do it, if predicted grades can be faked and mocks can be cheated, how are they going to standardise it?

My guess is that they will either postpone exams to maybe July/august or make some kind of prediction based off of homeworks/assessments we have done over the course of the year

omg same. Today my headteacher said there will be no exams at all. Apperently, they will give us our predicted grade but some teachers may put your level up by one. Idk if thats for everyone but I heard that my school is doing that.

but mocks are based on the exam(s) for a certain course. but predicted is based for all the exams, classwork, homework and ect so i think theyd use our predicted. Maybe they'll change our predicted as its based of the December exams and most of us done another extra one in jan/feb/march
