I'm a Y13 student who will be receiving my A-level results via CAGs.
My teachers say that these exams aren't the be all & end all, but that they do carry significant weight.
For Chemistry, I was predicted an A* - but I tend to work as an A student in mocks. However, for all class topic tests, I'll get an A* without fail.
For the recent internal assessment I did, I messed up and think I got a B.
How likely are they to drop me from an A* -> B based off that one paper?
It wasn't even a fair representation of my abilities: it only had 5 topics on it!

Those exams won’t be THE grades. But your teachers are going to look at them as an indication of what level you’re working at.

If you’ve been working at an A/A* all year, they won’t give you a B purely off that assessment.
