    When I passed all my GCSEs (Bs and Cs) I thought whoohooo! Here we go, now pass your ASs well and apply to a decent Uni.

    I have only just seen my predicted grades - My mother still isn't speaking to me so I had to beg my dad for my report. I hoped my teachers were going to predicted BBBC (C in English) because I had been working really hard so far this year and meeting these grades in tests/homeworks etc. But I ended up with a predicted AS of BCCD which has totally freaked me out.

    I want to apply to Cardiff which according to my Music Teacher usually means A (in Music)BB.

    The worse was I had a predicted grade of D in French which was one of best subjects at GCSE.

    Its parents evening on Thursday and with my mother and me still not speaking - I'm scared senseless espically when my French teacher said today I'm looking forward to meeting your mother.

    Now that you know this, you may work that little bit harder and get the grades you want. Predicted grades can be a blessing as well as a curse.

    They always tend to predict you lower maybe you could speak to your teachers to check whether that is a true prediction of what they think you will get and if so how you can improve.

    Don't worry. Predicted grades are rarely a good indication of reality - you know yourself better and if you think you'll do well, then the teachers comments mean nothing. And anyway, it's really your results which count.

    When I got my AS results back, I was crying for days, my parents didn't speak to me - it was the most horrible experience EVER. But it did blow over, and now I'm trying harder for A2's and trying to put all that behind me. Whatever your parents do, it's only because they care and want the best for you. Maybe it's not a good way of motivating you, but that's the way some parents do it. I really don't think your mum's mood will last. Don't worry - tell them you'll try much harder next time, and show them where you can improve etc. Don't let it get to you - there's more to life than predicted grades.

    Good luck!

    Predicted AS's don't matter -- they just give you a chance to prove your teachers wrong, and don't affect what unis you apply to. Predicted A2's are what matter, as unis see the predictions if they are in your reference.

    Ignore the predicted grades. I got predicted ACCDU or something silly last year and ended up with AAAAA.

    Just do your best.

    I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!!!!

    I GOT 6 A*'S AND 4 A'S AT GCSE, YET FOR AS LEVELS I AM PREDICTED:

    MATHEMATICS - A MINUS
    PHYSICS - A NORMAL
    ECONOMICS - A NORMAL
    COMPUTING A MINUS
    GENERAL STUDIES A NORMAL

    THAT FREAKED ME OUT, BUT AT LEAST IT WILL MAKE ME WORK HARDER TO ACHIEVE THE GRADES I WANT. ALTHOUGH I UNDERSTAND WHAT U R SAYING, YOU STILL WANT DECENT PREDICTIONS.

    ALL THE EBST ANYWAY, I AM USRE YOU WILL DO WELL.

    I'm glad your dad is ok with it. As for your mother, just give her some space. I'm sure she'll come around eventually - you are her daughter after all!
