“Sat” : biology, chemistry, maths
Mocks : A*A*A, wouldn’t be surprised if I got anything from AAA to BBC quite frankly given the whole standardisation, rank order and ib thing
Need : ABB or AAC with an A in chemistry
Formed: Bristol

I’m just terrified about the whole way it’s being done and am not too sure how it will not be susceptible to people having agendas when doing rank orders within grades or how the standardisation will affect things

I hope everyone gets what they need

Thank you! I'm a private candidate so I don't even know if I'll be getting my predicted. Just hoping the admissions team will be lenient towards me, by some miracle

Hi Dgeorge13 : You are going to make hundreds of us very nervous if A*A*A can become BBC. I am curious how you reached to this conclusion. Is the mock of year 13 is major factor to deciding students grades ? if not what are the other factors used by the teachers. My daughter was predicted A*A*A at the end year 12 but for the mocks she was very tired and stressed up and ended with A*A*C ( C being in chemistry but always got As and B before then) . She needs AAA.
regards

They were my mocks but my first set of y13 mocks were ABC which although not what I normally get or have got since did change my average from an a* to a lower a over the course of 2 years.

I didn’t necessarily think mocks were a major thing and there was a reasonable amount of teacher judgement used. Partially it’s because I go to a really large college and so don’t really know how the other 180 students that did biology or chemistry and the 380 students that do maths do or if my classes are representative of the reality of grades.

BBC News released this article today about A Level results and this may help everyone feel a bit more confident.
