    The first time was probably a warning, if she hasn't done it by now just don't give her a reason to act on it any further. If she actually tries to kick you out tell her you'll go to the papers and say you got kicked out of her school for being ill despite you making more effort and spending money on extra tuition.

    Convince her. You've mad positive changes to your life to ensure that you will get on track, and hopefully overtime that will show and she will realise she misjudged your ability as you want to succeed. Ignore her and believe you can do it, once you start improving there is no evidence to prove you're a bad pupil.

    I was going to delete the question because I didn't think I was going to get any responses. I didn't take that bit out purposely, I re-adjusted the question just now. But to be honest, I told her that I was having problems (mental health) before DEC because that's when my attendance was **** (it's 85%+). On top of that, I missed the mocks because I caught a stomach bug. I can't control my vomit and I know that bugs spread mad quickly, thats why I didn't go in for the exams otherwise I never miss an exam ever. It wasn't a warning. She really wants me to get out.

    Thanks for the advice. I just don't know how to convince her, I get quite cowardly around her because I feel intimidated.

    Don't convince with words convince with actions! Get good grades in as many assessments as possible before the exams. She wouldn't kick you out anyway, you've been entered for all the exams and cost the school money.

    She doesn't want me to stay until the next mocks. Its weird because she said she would let me stay until the next mocks (over mail during the holidays), but just this week she's telling me she can't wait until the next mocks. How can I prove her wrong with my actions if she's not giving me a chance? -_-

    Did you ever try to get a doctors note for missing the exam? Or did you go see a doctor at all?

    Get your parents to go in and speak with her. She'll probably believe it more if they tell her, and there won't be much she can if you've clearly sorted out the problem now. She won't try her **** with your parents, unless there's missing details there's not much grounds for kicking you out. Mention going to the papers (last resort) and watch her hide. Theres 5 months left, I'm sure both will just last it out and go separate ways

    Write her a letter with a reference from your tutor.
