UCAS Predicted grades for Upper Sixth students are made by Heads of Department, after taking advice from relevant teaching staff, by the end of the first full week of the autumn term and are based upon performance in the Lower Sixth and, in particular the Lower sixth internal examinations in the Summer term (and any remaining AS examination grades).
These predictions are the professional judgements of the teachers concerned and, obviously, they are carefully and fully considered. UCAS Predicted Grades may not be changed after they are published to parents, unless there are very special circumstances that warrant an early adjustment. Such changes must be agreed by the Head of Department and the Academic Deputy Head. The Deputy Directory of Sixth Form (Higher Education & Careers) and the Tutor must be kept informed.
UCAS Predicted Grades are reviewed during the second half of the Summer Term and the early part of the Autumn Term of Upper Sixth, so that any improvements in performance may be taken into account. This must be evidenced based and any changes agreed with the Head of Department and the Academic Deputy Head. Again, the Deputy Directory of Sixth Form (Higher Eduation & Careers) and the Tutor must be kept informed.
