    Default to take in mind (the fact ) that (?)

    Hi, I would like to ask whether the phrase "to take in mind (the fact )that" really exists in English. Example: "I think that the teacher won`t take in mind the fact that you were ill."

    I would say, "he won`t take into account the fact that..." but is "take in mind the fact that" also possible?

    thanks, Viktor

    You can 'bear things in mind', but 'take in mind' doesn't work for me.
