    I've just realised I put 'ordinary' for degree instead of 'honours' and now I can't change it, how much of a problem is this going to be?

    A massive one - you can't apply with an ordinary degree as it's below a third! Call UCAS and get it fixed.

    Oh okay. So I just write something like this for my personal statement:

    ''I will begin my school experience post-January''.

    The end.
    You write about why teaching, how you know teaching is for you, other experiences that will make you a great teacher and anything else that applies. There's guidance in the personal statement section of this website

    ********

    Should I enter my disability mentor as a character reference as she probably knows me best or, do I ask the chairperson of the learning disability group that I work at? I'm the deputy treasurer, so is there enough of a "gap" between our roles for her to be a good choice? I haven't spoken to her for quite a while as there's been a falling out in the group and I'm unsure if she's okay with me now.

    I could use my the leader of the National Citizen Service group that I volunteered with over the summer or the leader of the entire scheme in my city. I really don't know what to do

    Contact the individual universities. Be honest and say you accidentally selected the wrong option and it'll be okay. Did it ask you to add your degree class?

    Yes it did but I put 'pending' as I haven't got it yet.

    Do you think if my reference is going to write my predicted grade they will get it?

    I will contact them as well obviously.

    Nope. You can't make them even once you've sent it - well only to the choices.

    I've done everything I can, just waiting for my second reference now. Like most of you my academic tutor was very fast but my Headteacher hasn't accepted yet - I know he's very busy but its so frustrating! Will politely check in on Monday that he got the email as a prompt

    Noticed only after I can't change it that I accidentally entered one module twice but hoping that won't be a massive problem.

    I put for my degree type that I am doing a BA. Should I have put BA Hons? Will this be a problem? I put that I am leaving with a BA Hons degree on the drop down menu.

    Mines the same! My tutor has done my reference already but the Headteacher hasn't accepted the request yet. I'm hoping he has not forgot or read the email and forgot.. I'm such a worrier.. And I don't want to email him yet because I feel cheeky and annoying lol

    Email them to confirm if they've received the email...the UCAS lady told me that sometimes it can go in junk mail so just say, "i wanted to make sure you'd received the email as sometimes it can go in junk folder..."

    Argh the wait for references is on!

    Submitted my application this morning after proofing it, desperately hope it is all there and correct, but I did my best!

    After adamantly saying I'd apply for uni courses, I ended up with 2 school direct options, as that seems to be the location of most of the places!

    I aslo ended up writing my work experience as prose, a section on school, a section on my current job and a section on my internship, with reference to other roles that I can expand in interview. It looked really messy to do it in lists and in brief, as I have so much work experience, so I'm hoping they accept I've focused on what I do now as okay!

    My secondary reference has accepted and I've been in school today and they are writing it. They CAN see your whole application which is pretty scary lol! Waiting for my ex academic supervisor to get in touch, I emailed him as soon as I submitted my application, but he now only works part time! As long as everything is done by next friday I think I'll be happy with that!

    GOOD LUCK everyone

    I have done the same, though my highest qualification will be MA. I listed my BA modules as priority, as they cover more of the relevant curriculum subjects... Hope it's okay, couldn't see an Hons option, unless I missed it!
