    Hi guys, I need something cleared up. I submitted my ucas app with my referee`s details filled in and "please contact X for my reference". Im starting to worry now that they wont consider my app as there isnt a reference even though my referee will provide one.

    Can anyone confirm my worries or put my mind at rest ?!

    Thanks in advance,:o:

    Unless there are some admissions tutors on here, we can't know for sure what the individual universities will do. I'll guess that it'll be okay, though.

    Thanks in advance,
    Contact UCAS tomorrow and ask them for advice. I'm sure you won't be the first person to have managed to do this, so don't worry about it

    I emailed universities saying I couldn't get a reference and could I just put contact blah blah blah for my reference.
    They just answered that they didn't have time to contact everyone so a reference would be ideal.
    I managed to get one in the end though.
    I wouldn't worry too much OP, just contact UCAS and see what they say.
