    hello there , i'm going to be in yr 11 next yr and will be applying for college around september.

    i've currently got my predicted grades back which weren't that good ( english D, Maths D, Science D)

    do you think i could apply to a A-C expecting college with these predicted grades as they aren't the real grades.

    Hope you'll answer the question

    Thank you

    Can you not get your teacher to raise the grades slightly. You can apply but id doubt youd be likely to get accepted. You can always apply after results day if you dont get a place but get the grades

    You can still work harder to get them changed. It's too early to be applying now. Show in september that you can improve, and hopefully, if all goes well your teacher will change them

    predicted grades, especially at gcse can be very inaccurate. at the end of the day, it's down to you.

    I'm sure you're capable of more, as predicted grades are slightly inaccurate. Just concentrate on achieving the grades you want

    Predicted Grades Don't Mean A Great Deal
    They're not the final marks, just work your socks of to get C's in those 3
    Good Luck

    There is a college near me that offers a foundation programme. This is aimed at students who have achieved at least four grade Ds at GCSE level. It is a GCSE retake programme that is designed to take one year. Perhaps there is a college near you that offers something simular. In any case, there will be opportunities to re-take the three core subjects, but this may require doing a foundation year first.
