    I found out yesterday that my school has sent UCAS a letter explaining my situation with chemistry teaching at the school, basically my teacher decided to leave at about january, we didnt get a new teacher for 1-2 months, and the new teacher was a biology teacher and could only teach us for 4/6 lessons...

    My head of year said that the letter said that basically he wants our Unis to take our Chem grades into 'special consideration' or something, if we miss them. What exactly does this mean? Does it mean I can fail Chem but aslong as I get BB in maths/physics theyll let me in?

    I think it depends on the Uni- he can't force them to take anything into consideration, but if they do then they might let you in even if you miss your offer. So it's not guaranteed, but it'll probably help.

    Sounds good I dont expect to meet my chemistry offer really so hopefully they will take it into consideration
