    I'm going to choose Chester uni as my firm and am adamant on going there. I've been offered a place conditional of getting BBC, but I'm concerned that I might not achieve this in one subject as I have been left without a teacher for the last 4 months due to my teacher going on sick and the college not organising cover. It's been a bit of a nightmare but is beyond my control, and I'd be so gutted if I didnt get into Chester.

    So due to these reasons I'm wondering if the uni would consider my circumstances if I contacted them and allow some lenciancy if I do not meet one of the required grades?

    Just try your best! As for leniency, it depends on aspects such as how many applicants there are for your course and and stuff.

    Contact the uni and make a complaint to the college. Im not sure what the rule is on teacher absences or whether yours would be sufficient, but you could also speak to the exam board and take their guidance.

    Do that quickly then focus and work hard. Do past papers and work on your areas of weakness. Worry after the exams if you have to, no time for that now.
