Will my school be able to see which unversities I have chosen to apply to?

I'd rather my school didn't know my university choices until I've actually had the offers/rejections.

At my school UCAS sends it on to the referee (careers adviser) who can see them.

I assume it'll be the same for you. Did you use a buzzword or something similar at the start?

They see it when they write a reference
But why do you even want to conceal your university choices from them?

They might think I'm being ambitious with one or two of my choices. But in my opinion, I've chosen places with offers that I realistically think I will be able to achieve.

I believe it is nothing of their business that you have choices which THEY think that you might not be good enough for. If they told you you should change these tell them that you believe in your potential. I'm pretty sure they have no right to force you into changing your university choices,

Also what is wrong with being ambitious? I thought schools liked ambitious people.
