Cant really predict cos your teachers will take other things into consideration but I do feel sorry for you guys. Like many people, I got Cs and Bs in my mocks but managed to get As in my actual exams.

I know I was struggling with bereavement during year 12 and the sixth form knew about this but they didn't know my doctor referred me for therapy. I only really started working during year 13 and was going to ramp this is up in these last 2 months

Thanks for the quote

I obviously can't give you a definitive answer, but your mocks are consistent and I presume there is further work like essays, problem sets etc which you've had as homework over the year and t woutwhich are also at this level. It would thus be sensible to think that you would get these results as 'confirmed'.

You're unlikely to get much higher than that, unfortunately.

I can't tell you that. It depends on the balance of work and evidence at each grade. If there is more evidence of work at the D level than the C, then you will be awarded a D, and vice versa.

I would say A,B at max, 2Cs minimum, remember teachers are aware most ppl do better than their mocks in actual A levels, which is probably reflected in ur GCSE (I assume u had **** GCSE mocks so did I)

Some students do - some students don't. This is going to be the problem - it has to be done on what you have achieved, not what you might have achieved.

However, all students are going to be in this position, so when the exam boards have the final cohort mark, it's quite feasible that some wholesale 'adjustment' would be made to ensure grade distributions remained broadly similar to last year.

no a part of teacher’s assessment is about what they think you MIGHT achieve

I would say quite a part that forms your teacher’s assessment, bare in mind not every school has done mocks

I think GCSEs are going to be very important as it’s the only standardised externally assessed marks they have. 75 percent of predictions are crap
