I've had bad mocks recently which was due to me having Covid and missing two weeks of revision - yet the school still made me do it. Now they will use the results for predicted grades.

Back to the point, how important are they? I personally think they're unfair

They are crucial for your UCAS application - the main aspect for Uni decisions.

If you are worried about this, then dont apply to UCAS this year.
Work as hard as you can for good grades, and apply next year with achieved grades.
No guesswork and no predicted grades. Nowhere does it say you can only apply to Uni straight from school.

Yes, but.....

Not every course at every Uni will be in Clearing.
The panicky chaos of Clearing is not a good environment to make the best decision.
You wont have a chance to vist the Uni or see where you will be for the next 3 or 4 years.
You will be at the bottom of the list for student housing.
