    you get your referee to e-mail you a reference and you paste it in the section. Or give your referre your ucas log-in details and they cant enter it in themselves

    Yeah, get them to email your reference to you, and you paste it in (and no you can't just write what you want, it's says in your application when its sent to your unis that you're an individual applicant and have added the reference yourself).

    Alternatively, you can give your referee your login details, or log in to UCAS while they're there for them to add it.
