So I got my GCSE predicted grades today, and I'm pretty happy with them, but I'm disappointed in my English grades. I got all 3 7s and the rest 8s, and my English teacher gave me 7s. I'm a but confused because he marked my work recently saying it was a grade 8?? I'm not sure what to do

Honestly do not stress, English grades are widely speculative - just listen to your teacher's feedback and correct any issues with SPAG and then focus just sophisticating your language and understand all the texts you study

7 is still a very good grade!!

It's just a prediction ... use the feedback to improve. One grade 8 piece doe not make your prediction grade 8.

A single grade 8 piece of work probably doesn't show your overall performance, and so your English teacher is likely to understand that you may not be at the level for a predicted grade 8. Its not very good to be too perfectionist, so I would recommend looking at the feedback and understand how you could improve to do better when you're in the real exams. Grades normally increase from mocks, but not without any work put in! Worrying too much about a single number really isn't good for you (I've learned from experience lol) and stay positive! A 7 is still a really good grade and have hope (my english lang and lit gcse grades were 2 grades higher than my mock grades, so don't feel too down about it).
