    Hi,

    I was wondering, do the tutors write your reference for UCAS after you hit pay/send. On the UCAS website it says they do it after but on some other websites it says during.

    The thing is, i've sent my application and I know the centre checks it so if it doesn't have a reference, they wont send it to UCAS will they?

    Thanks! I'm really panicking

    I'm on a gap year and my tutor isn't replying to my email.

    On the website it says

    Applying through a school, college or other organisation
    You won't have access to your reference. This will be completed on your behalf by your centre.

    1.Check that each section of your application is correct and mark them all as complete.
    2.Pay for your application (if applicable) and send it online to your referee.
    3.Your referee will check and approve your application.
    4.Your referee will write the reference.
    5.Your centre will approve the reference and send it to us.
    6.We'll then process your application.

    So I can only assume i've done my half and they have to do their half now right?

    Scarred? That is a horrible way to die: the death of a thousand cuts. Almost as bad as being scared to death.

    I think so yes :yep: although really it would be safe to call UCAS up,
    and if you can get in touch with your tutor or call them up as well just so that you know fo'sure =]

    Oh no it's fine!

    Silly me!

    I just logged into UCAS and realised it says it right there "Your reference has not been started yet" They probably wouldn't let it get sent of without a reference anyway.
