Importance of school tests in predicted grades for A levelsWatch
At the start of the year, I got 2 D's for the first 2 school tests for double maths as a result of a lack of motivation due to my personal situation. However, after a lot of hard work, I believe I should be able to get A*'s in our next test, our end of year mocks, and resits for the previous tests which I did badly in. Will I still be able to achieve an A* for my predicted grades, or will the D's at the start of the year drag me down even if I perform really well in future tests?
It honestly depends mostly on your college or sixth form. My college looks at results throughout the year but puts more emphasis on the more recent tests but i have friends at other sixth forms that weigh all the grades the same so you’ll have to ask your teachers
One thing to remember is that your teachers really do want you to do well so if you ask them then they’ll usually happily answer. I know in my college, a lot of the teachers were giving the opportunity to do extra exams after class to try and improve their predicted grades and i know some people that went from C to A because of this so you should try and ask if that is an option (:
