I'm about to send off my UCAS, but don't have a reference as I left college a year ago. I could ring my college and ask for one, but I would rather not, seeing as its been a year since I was there, plus I didn't do too well at college and my attendance was pretty poor. Can't get a reference from an employer either.

Is it important that I have one?
Will it affect my application that much?

Yes, it is vital to have one. You need an academic reference, not an employer's reference.

I had a tutor not long ago, although not for the subject I will study at university. Do you reckon a reference from him, would be sufficient enough?
