Hi I am currently taking five GCSEs and I got predicted a 4 in physics 5 in maths 5 in English language 6 in biology and 6 in chemistry. So I predicted between 4-6 in my GCSEs basically. I really want to go to a grammar school for sixth form and study Alevel maths , ethics and philosophy and economics. I applied for a place in grammar school two to three months ago. I worried I won’t get in because grammar schools only offer you places based on your Predicted grades and reference the school gives you. Is there anywhere I can still get the offer for grammar schools? I know my grades are just average and but is there still a chance?

I attend a grammar school, and the sixth form entry requirements are quite high - they expect at least 7 GCSEs at grade 7 or above. Of course it will vary for different sixth forms, but I'm assuming most will be similar. But don't give up - those are just your predicted grades, so if you work hard in the next few months you could achieve higher!

Thank you for your encouragement and I do hope I get offered that place at grammar school I just need a grade 6 in English and grade 7 in maths to do all the subjects I want to do. Do you know what I can do to improve my grades because I need to get a grade higher predicted for me in English and two grades higher predicted for me for maths. Please tell me what you did to improve your grades?
