Im applying for 2009 presently, my tutor says she will be doing everyone in my forms' references shortly, however I was just wondering whether people actually see the reference on their UCAS?
I can't see any facility for this on the UCAS site, it only does your info so is the UCAS reference hidden from the applicant, and only seen by UCAS & the Unis?
I didn't really see any of it, jsut wht my tutor told me, an interviewer was very impressed what it said about me
said so in the interview, so beware they will b looking at it
all my teachers are crap teachers, they don't even bother to right good reviews, just a few generic sentences, such as X is a good student, her attendance was XX% and likes rollerblading.
it pisses me off that they dont bother to help a student go into uni.
to the OP: You cannot see there reference, they can see what progress you are making with your application but you cant see what they are doing. Unless they are nice tutors who will write down anything you couldnt fit in your PS etc.
Surely if you really wanted to, you could apply to your school under the data protection act too...I'm pretty sure they'd keep copies of references, even if it was just in the 'My Documents' folder on the computer of whoever wrote it.
Anyways, if you want to go via UCAS, this is what you have to do:
Under The Data Protection Act, you can receive a copy of any information we have about you. The cost is £10.
You can write to us requesting a copy of your application, or if you have a credit or debit card, you can contact our Customer Service Unit on +44 (0)871 468 0 468 and arrange to receive a copy of the information we hold. UK BT landline calls will cost no more than 9p per minute. Calls from mobiles and other networks may vary.
