In this note, we summarize and compare various model predictions for $pp$ total cross-section $\sigma_{\rm tot}^{pp}$, giving an estimate of the range of predictions for the total cross-section, $\sigma_{\rm tot}^{pp}$ expected at the LHC. We concentrate on the results for $\sigma_{\tot}^{pp}$ obtained in a particular QCD based model of the energy dependence of the total cross-section,including the effect of soft gluon radiation. We obtain the range of predictions in this model by exploring the allowed range of model parameters. We further give a handy parametrisation of these results which incidentally spans the range of various other available predictions at the LHC as well.
