    Well at least you've got three to choose from. Don't you want to be away from where you live?

    Please remember that you should not wait to have your confirmed offer at university before you submit a Student Finance England application. SFE don't confirm your offer when you apply, they confirm your attendance at the start of the course.

    I surely do, but I do not want to go really far from birmingham, it is the best city in UK. Most of other places have a lot of problems (racism). Obviously London is nice but it is expensive to live there.

    ye but student finance does not give enough money, if you live and support yourself it will barely cover the 3 year rent.

    I think most people who study in London work as well.

    Good Luck with Birmingham I've never been there. Looks nice is there a lot of nightlife? London is great for that.

    Quick update, most of Universities did not ask me for UCAS and even if they did they say that you can apply without it.
    I cannot apply for any Uni before I get my grades (Thursday 22/08/2013).

    If you are in same position as me DO NOT APPLY FOR UCAS, call the university directly.

    Birmingham is same a London but with no tourists, Night life is great, so many clubs, bars and cheap hotels (£35 a night), great food, but most important it has a mix of cultures. So even if your black, white, polish, asian, indian, Everyone are welcome.

    :eek: pls help I just payed for my UCAS now and its been sent to my college to get a reference but it is summer time, who is going to do it now!?!? I know Im super late but what can I do now?

    Thats what UCAS says to me:
    Your application has been sent to your school or college. They will check and approve your application, write and approve their reference, and send the completed application to us. We will then process the application and send you a welcome letter and a booklet in the post; they will explain what happens next. The current status of your application is:

    Your application has not yet been approved by your referee/coordinator.
    04-10-2012 (11:31) Your reference is in progress.


    Super depressed......
    My uni is open for clearing. Is yours a college? Is there a number for the college you can ring to ask?

    Some people did not understand my question and just for sake of other people who are in similar position as me I will do a short explanation: I was studying a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in IT and Networking, I have sent of my UCAS application on 17/08/2013 and my question was How to get a reference from my personal tutor, obviously it is summer holiday.

    My actions: I have emailed few teachers regarding my reference and I will also go to my college on Monday if I will not get any replies.
    I just read this after my post to you,so It makes more sense now.
