    Hello, I was wandering if schools check students' UCAS applications and if so, is there anyway i can stop certain members of staff at my school checking my UCAS application, I have certain reasons as to why i want to do this and would like some advice. Does it depend on who i give my password to? Or is it something to do with a buzzword? The only person i want to check it is my form tutor who will also be my referee and myself obviously. :confused:

    Sorry if this sounds odd but for me it is important and it is my first time using UCAS, help would be appreciated so thanks in advance.
    Such senior members of staff are not gonna read through your application as they simply do not have capacity. It will be checked by your form tutor who will cross check grades and make sure all is in order, your head of sixth form or a designated deputy will simply click a button. Raising some sort of prevention order will raise suspicions and then your application will be read and read by god knows how many tutors

    In addition to what everyone's said, I don't really see a problem with your head of year seeing your application. He will mostly be checking that everything on the application is correct. He doesn't write the reference and even if he could change the reference I'm sure he wouldn't risk his job by writing something negative. Unless your tutor is lying about you in the reference, there's nothing to worry about

    Sadly not. Just sort out your differences as others have already suggested.

    I'd just like to add that even if for some strange reason your head of year hates you (I'm sure they don't!), it would never be in their interest to damage your application by changing it. Not only would it be unprofessional and therefore career jeopardizing, but it would also mean it's more likely they'll have to support you through a reapplying process again

    Why don't you want your head of sixth checking your application? And don't just say 'personal circumstances', because we can't help you with your problem if we don't really know what it is.

    Why not just attempt to sort out any problems with your head of sixth form instead of potentially jeopardizing your application?

    Not any tutor can see your UCAS form only the ones concerned this is due to data protection
