    Cool, good luck.


    Just had a reply back from my school referee, she has received the email. No word on when she'll be doing my reference though! Ah well

    Need some advice about my references.

    I gave my principal reference 5 weeks notice and my secondary about 3 weeks notice for their references. Sent my application in on Thursday about 1pm, heard nothing from them, not even an acknowledgement, for the rest of Thursday and Friday. My skills test is tomorrow and I thought I wouldn't be able to take them without the references so I emailed both on Saturday to ask if they could complete their references by Thursday otherwise I wouldn't be able to take the tests. Neither of them have replied and it's now Wednesday but I'm assuming they've read the emails and just not replied as they've always replied to my previous emails in about an hour. I've rang the skills test helpline and they said I can take my skills tests without the references, but I'm not going to tell my references that because I still need my application in ASAP! So for them their deadline is tonight and they still haven't done them. Should I send them another email today to remind them? I don't want to be pushy but I'm getting really worried as people are getting interviews and my references aren't even replying to me even though they were both more than happy to do the references

    I rang Sunderland Uni and there interview dates for business are in January, then they emailed me back asking what date in January I'd like my interview????? But I haven't had a welcome pack yet? I'm confused, they mustn't have many applicants so they must interview individuals not groups.

    Do you have to provide you GCSE Certs? I thought if you'd done you degree that's what they would want proof of not GCSE?

    You have to have GCSE English and Maths above C to get onto a course, and also C in science for primary and you have to take original certificates to interview. My courses are asking for A-level certificates too, not sure if that is the case for everyone.

    The Cumbria uni campus is actually in Lancaster, not Cumbria. I don't know if you've been to Lancaster but it's pretty nice. Accommodation is average for a student city, maybe 60-70 a week. Locals are friendly.

    In terms of the work exp you quoted me about, I did it like this for example-
    Brown high school, brown road. 7/5/2013-13/5/2013. Observation of years 7-11.

    I just did that for each one.

    Lancaster has clobbled streets, right? It looks like a small market town rather than a city. :/
    Btw, how will they know if you did the minimum 2 weeks? From what I see above I see you did 6 days but in this case:
    Brown high school, brown road. 7/5/2013-27/5/2013. Observation of years 7-11.

    How will they know if I did 15 days or just 4 days (one day per week).

    I am asking because the above is my case.

    Is the personal ID for track different to the personal ID on our emails?
    I think so, seeing as the personal ID for track & the ones we had for applying don't work. I've tried singing in with my email/password/personal ID in the email, but no luck! Just have to be patient and wait for the welcome letter, although UCAS say they do email the welcome letters to you as well. Whether this is true, idk!

    Scroll down to where it says 'waiting for a UCAS Welcome letter?' (though there are links to other useful tidbits as well)

    Yeah if you want to stay in a place with a big city feel, don't go there. It is a market town. Depends what you like. I won't be staying there if I get in, I live close enough to commute.

    My example isn't actually what I did, it's just to demonstrate (I don't know where you got six days from). But anyway, so say you did one day per week like you did, I'd put:
    13/11/2013, 20/11/2013, 27/11/2013...and so on. So just list the dates separately.
