    My teacher lost my coursework in yr 10 and then left. I was then entered for the foundation tier instead of higher as my written work was missing.

    You should write everything down and say that his behaviour may be jeopardising your university place and if you do not get the essays then you will b forced to take legal action. This is not only to scare the senior managers of the school but as you may be applying to cambridge (did you ever decide whether to or not?) then formal legal documetation will provide a strong case if you don't get an A (which i'm sure you'll get). By the way, what papers are you doing? I'm doing Pilosophy of mind and Aristotle- nicomachean ethics.

    That's quite extreme! I agree you should complain though - go to whoever is his senior and see if they can do something about it. Sounds as if he's one of those teachers that just puts a tick at the end of work and pretend they've marked it though, so you'll probably have to do without before the exam.
    I don't think so - I agree with Fluffy and PQ. He is obviously not being honest about this, for whatever reason, but it is irresponsible and unprofessional to say the least, and absolutely unacceptable behaviour for someone in his position.
    He is abusing the authority that he has and needs to be made to account for his behaviour to someone.

    I would suggest that you complain about him officially whether your work turns up this time or not - I know there won't be so much personal motivation for it, but if he feels he can get away with this ridiculous attitude to your grades and work, then he will see no reason not to do it to other people in the future, who may suffer from it more than you.
    Give the idiot a wake up call.
