I think it’s mainly previous test scores but I think teachers with favourites might factor in their “knowledge”

Your teachers will have submitted evidence- it may not just be test scores, and it may not include all of your test scores- to support the grade the believe you would have achieved had you sat the exam.

In theory, if they think you are capable of e.g. a B, they will have tried to gather evidence to support this.

However, if you are a "do no work and cram last minute" sort of student, and they think you would have pulled out a B on the day, but all your evidence currently shows a D, they will have had to have submitted a D.

You can ask your school/college at any time what their procedures were for determining your grade (although as it's the holidays, it may be that no-one will get back to you this week).

This year is entirely evidence based and your final grade is basically what you are working at rather than what the teachers 'think' you can achieve.

I think last years grades were a prediction of what they thought the student would achieve
