    What do you mean by school record?

    You list your places of study and qualifications (including retakes and fails) in your application. Your referee then provides a reference which might include info about your attendance, attitude to work, predicted grades and what those predictions are based on etc.

    So if I get into a huge argument with the school librarian on the last day, would they put that in?

    No, they just check ur grades and want your money. they go by the reference you get given which is all positive stuff.

    That's not true - references can be negative or neutral (or just extremely short) as long as a referee can justify their comments with evidence. If someone has poor attendance or has a poor attitude to their work then that can and will be disclosed in a reference.

    Universities will see what your school chooses to write in your reference.

    Convince your school that it isn't going to happen again between now and your application going off and you should be fine.
