    im doing 3 subjects intensive as a home student and i need help with my ucas, ive finished most of the sections apart form Reference. I called UCAS and asked them who can do my reference and they said i could use a private tutor.
    However, i was wondering if my private tutor states that i am doing an intensive course from home in my application?
    also as i dont have predicted grades what do i do?

    i need help asap as i want o send off my application this week

    thanks

    ive also been doing 3 @ home (biology, psych and maths) and am close to sending off my application. im using my employer to do my reference. use your personal statement to fill them in on how youve been studying and regarding predicted grades, i cant put anything there either but yourll have your exam grades so far as an indicator. what subjects are you taking anyway?

    yup - wel i did psych A2 last year and AS bio, this year im doing A2 bio, A2 maths and AS eng. I find maths the best one to do really as its straightforward regarding whether or not your doing well. english however is a bit of pain as im going by my own judgement. hows urs workin out for u?

    I am in the same position, I was thinking of asking my employer but I'm not sure...

    Did your employer say anything about your going to uni? I had to get mine to sign my exam forms he seemed pissed off that I was bothering him with it

    I read that references were 4,000 word essays... did your employer write a lot or was it just a generic reference with predicted grades added?

    Do you work for a big company or a small place?

    Sorry for all the questions, it's just I've got no one else to ask lol

    i know what you mean. all i can say is if it doesnt click with the text that your learning from, go to other sources. there are so many sites (and youtube videos) dedicated to maths that eventually you find someone explains it jst right for you.
