Which is correct?
Some students had forgotten that they (would / were to) have a history class instead of chemistry that day.

They are both grammatically and semantically correct.
... that they would have ...... that they were to have ...
Who has told you that one is incorrect? They are WRONG! Like @thebax, I have a preference for 'were to', but there is absolutely nothing wrong with 'would'.

I would go with "would." Both are technically correct.

They are both acceptable. I prefer "were to".
