So I've missed about 6 days out of the year so far. I've just been unlucky with getting ill and also some days I've just not had the motivation to go to school because of other problems. Will universities not accept me if I have bad attendance?

Yea, because your teachers only write good things on your reference, so unis will never know if you have bad or good attendance.

honestly I had awful attendance and Uni's did not care one bit.
obviously try to go in even if youre feeling a bit rough, even if you go home during free periods etc, but being ill here and there cant be helped

Attendance matters (well to me anyways), it prepares you for when you have a job, obviously serious illnesses cannot be helped, but not going in because you have a cold or headache etc. Is a bit silly. Again depends on severity of illness i suppose. I dont think unis care but they should care
