I'm on a gap year and going to apply to uni. I've asked my former teacher to be my reference but she said she's currently on a sick leave and hasn't confirmed whether or not she's going to be my reference. Im not sure what to do because I don't know how long she's going to be on a sick leave for and prefer not to deal with my reference at the last minute. She was my main teacher last year but should I just ask another one although I wasn't with them as much?

I think for school students the reference is usually coordinated by someone else that isn't their teacher - usually a personal tutor or sometimes another teacher in charge of UCAS things. Said individual will get information from the students teachers and put together a reference based on that. Perhaps try that route of contacting your personal tutor or some kind of head of year or something at your old school?

Contact your school - Head of 6th etc - as they will have all your records. Just email them.
That is the issue for your teacher, she doesnt have access to your school grades/reports etc to use for content.
