It sounds like your teacher is being a little stubborn, however I think the best thing you can do is prove that you are capable. Make sure to be attentive in their lesson and complete their homework from now. Perhaps if you have time, you could try practising some past papers and bring them in to show the teacher. This will show the teacher that you’re working to achieve a top grade. Is there a form teacher or head of year that you can talk to about the matter too?

Just ask your parents to go and speak to your head about it. Try and persuade them that you realise you've made a mistake but you genuinely feel you are well capable of doing well.
Hope this helps.

No need to yell. That hurts my eyes.

Have you proven through the homework that you have done that you’re capable of getting 6/7’s? Go and speak to the teacher and explain. Apologise for not doing the work.

lol

who cares about what your teachers predict? if you achieve a 9 on results day the school isn't gonna turn around and say "ur not allowed to do maths because u didn't apply for it in november". lots of people drop a-level maths in the first month so there'll be space for you.

but that's all dependent on you achieving a high grade.
Yay thankss

Yay thankss
yeah and i’d expect you’d have the option to change it on an ‘enrolment day’ or something - we were given the option to change it then when i joined sixth form.
predicted grades aren’t really that important at GCSE.

Step 1: Tell your teacher it's affecting your college choice and would they please consider changing it so you can apply to college.
Step 2: if teacher says no, go to the head of department to see if they can overrule your teacher who gave you that grade.
Step 3: go to the head teacher if Step 1 & 2 comes to nothing
Step 4: if no one in your school can help, approach your college and explain the situation and politely ask them whether they would consider waiving this requirement because your teacher gave you a poor predicted grade for missing some homeworks. Offer to do an entrance test or otherwise if required.

It shouldn't need to go past step 1 though - Just be apologetic and say it won't happen again (missing homeworks), and basically beg to get a higher predicted grade.

Good luck!
