    What a nightmare. Such a ridiculous system. Is there anyway of going direct i wonder. Probably not. What if you set up a new load of details for yourself? New ID etc and copy paste your form into it? Then everything from scratch, although I suppose that messes up your other reference. :confused:
    There are clearly issues as so many other people have experienced the same problem. I could give that a go, I'm going to call ucas first thing in the morning and wait for them to tell me what else I can do, manually sending hopefully is an option. Will update!

    Try not to worry too much! I am sure you'll hear something this week from them. I sent mine off on the 28th Nov because I had a nightmare last year waiting for references so wanted to make sure I got it off quickly this time round. Have you had your confirmation email at least?
    I haven't even had a confirmation email yet.. Was hoping to at least hear whether or not i had got an interview before Christmas! Hope you hear back about your decision soon!

    Did you have any interviews with UEL? What level/route/subject was the application for?
    Are you doing primary at IOE or secondary?

    I know I had confirmation emails from my other 2 choices. Might email admissions and double check, don't want them to think I'm being pushy though!! X

    Offer for Kings just came through! Just one more response to wait for and then I can make my decision.

    Those that have completed their Numeracy Skills test, any tips? How good was it compared to the online practice tests that we are provided with?
    It's a little easier than the practice tests in my mind. There is one topic that comes up twice that isn't in any of those tests (which others have alluded to on this thread) but it's so straightforward a thing that it's nothing to worry about.

    After over 2 weeks i still have not received my second reference, they have followed all the steps UCAS advised including making a new email account and still nothing. FUMING
    Perhaps find someone else to provide you with a reference? I know it's not ideal - and this really is a terrible system - but that sounds like your best bet to me.

    I found the real one slightly easier than the practice ones. I signed up to Numeracy Ready and practised all of their tests quite a few times until I felt confident on the mental arithmetic part. I think the calculator part was easier too. I had ten minutes spare at the end of the test so I had time to go back and double check all my answers. Make sure you're confident (and quick) at working out fractions/percentages/time/converting km/miles and you'll be fine!

    Only had my interview yesterday and already had an offer which i've seen this evening! Had consigned myself to maybe not finding out till after christmas but obviously not anymore.

    Do you think Numeracy ready is worth the money? I just tried an online test and found it really difficult and ending up quitting before I got to the end haha

    Definitely. I was really rusty on my mental arithmetic until I signed up to Numeracy Ready. It's only £20 and without it, I really don't think I would have passed my skills test. I've recommended it to so many people now, they should be paying me commission!

    Wow that is fast. Well done! I have an interview there in Jan.

    Hoping to find out if I have an offer from Sheffield Hallam before xmas but it was only yesterday and term finishes on Friday so probably not.
