Dear Parent or Guardian,

Your child’s provisional predicted grade in each IB subject was given to your child this afternoon. There is no grade for Theory of Knowledge or the Extended Essay.

These are preliminary predictions and can change next term according to the student’s academic performance in September and October. These predictions are based on the following factors: IGCSE grades, Year 12 performance in assessments throughout the year, general attitude towards learning, potential, and the teacher’s professional judgment. These predictions should help your son or daughter select their choice of degree course and universities short list. For instance, if your child has a prediction of 35, he/she should choose universities that require between 32-36 points. When researching degree courses, remember to check the IGCSE grade requirements because a minimum grade in subjects, such as Mathematics and English, may be specified.

Certain degree courses may require students to sit aptitude tests, such as Law (LNAT) and Medicine (BMAT, UCAT). Registration for some of these aptitude tests has already begun and details about registration deadlines can be found on the UCAS website for UK universities. Click on the following link:

Any students who need to register for aptitude tests, this also includes applications to Oxford and Cambridge universities, should do so promptly. It is vital that pupils meet the registration deadlines or their ability to apply to some universities will be jeopardised. Admissions tests may be required for universities in The Netherlands, Ireland and other European destinations but check the relevant university website for details.

All pupils have signed up to the University Applications Google classroom where there is ongoing information posted regarding the application process in the UK and other destinations. Parents can also access this information upon request.

I wish you and your family a healthy and restful summer.

Yours sincerely,

Eleni Siani
Universities Counsellor
