Do teachers actually use the AS+1 method when they give predicted grades?

No ... on a linear course the AS is 40% of the content so prediction would probably be same grade unless near grade boundary and consistently above during the year. However no teacher relies on one piece of data.

At my school we don't sit the AS exams, we just have year 12 mocks at the end of year 12 and then another set of Mocks in September at the start of year 13.

If you're applying for an early entry course, e.g medicine and need predicted grades early they combine your grades for an average,e.g a B and then +1, so predict you an A.

If you're applying for a normal course with the 15th january deadline e.g Art then you sit ANOTHER mock in November, they again average your grades and do a +1.

That's just what my school does, wbu?

Most teachers will look at your current work level, use their previous experience, and be slightly generous.

[AS levels are a thing of the past - and they were no better at predicting A2 grades anyway.]
