    Hi everyone,

    I need a response to this fairly quickly sorry. Effectively, I need to know if people know whether when a school writes a reference for you, it's specific to a course. To be more specific, I'm reapplying, and I know that my school is using my reference from last year (when I applied for English) and just adding something onto the end. This year, however, I'm applying for English and French courses, and Law and French courses. I've just gone into a bit of a panic as I don't know if this is now going to stop me from getting into Law and French.

    It depends how they write it. They can include what they want - which may be "Bob is absolutely amazing at juggling!" or not mention the subject at all.

    I was panicking, something I'm not particularly used to, which made me panic even more. I was trying to get the information as soon as possible, and by any means possible
