    Yikes, that's terrible. I'm in an almost-similar situation in that my boss still hasn't done my reference, but pretty sure she will although it will not doubt happen on Thursday afternoon when I'll be having multiple panic attacks.

    You may have already done this (and this is assuming you can't find anyone else to be referee), but is it worth politely explaining the situation, i.e. that there is a hard deadline for you of 6pm on 15 October and her reference needs to be in before then or else you cannot submit? I think if she has already agreed to give you a reference, the least she can do is follow through and write something basic, which won't take very long. Give her a PDF of the guidance for referees (from UCAS website) and maybe pull together some extra points for her to include for GEM courses. That is, try to make it as easy as possible for her, so she knows what she needs to cover!

    I would also suggest speaking to her face to face or by telephone, she would have to be a pretty mean-spirited person to say to your face that she can't find 30 minutes to write you a brief reference this week.

    Good luck!


    My referee is currently in Sweden otherwise believe me I would have been at her door. Can I use an employment referee? Already spoke to my manager and she's happy to do it, does it make a difference to the application, been two years since I left uni anyway.

    Work reference is definitely fine, especially if you are two years out of uni! I am doing a manager reference, as uni was quite a few years ago and would be pointless/impossible to obtain.

    Did you say your ukcat was 587??

    I'm sorry, I don't want to be too blunt, but that ukcat wouldn't stand a chance for graduate entry. They are looking for 700+ averaged. You best shot is with five year scores that don't focus heavily on ukcat.

    What are you're other academics like?

    I'm using a work reference, don't think it really matters for GEM

    Thank you both, that's a lot of stress relieved.

    It needs to be in your education section of UCAS

    Sent it off!

    Do you have to wait for a confirmation email from them confirming your personal ID before putting in on Pearson VUE? Cos mine changed last year?

    So scary sending it off you always feel like you've done something wrong!

    Hey, am I supposed to put a predicted degree classification somewhere in the education part of the UCAS application or is having my tutor mention it in my reference enough? From the drop down selection I have put pending and can't seem to find a place where I would state a predicted grade, any advice?

    As an individual applicant does my reference need to submit the reference before the 15th when my application deadline is?
    It is getting close and reference not done...getting very nervous now.

    Yes it does, you can't send your application without it.

    Yes. You won't be able to send it without the reference section completed!! Maybe ask your referee (nicely) how it's going??
