    I decided recently I was going to go through clearing to try and get into JMU doing Property Management and filling in the UCAS form i eventually got to the reference bit.

    I went to uni this year and eventually dropped out. I don't want to get a reference from the tutors at uni so I'm trying to get one from my Art Foundation tutor but I'm having a bit of trouble getting it and I'm fast running out of time.

    What'd be the best thing to do if I can't get the reference tomorrow?

    Send the UCAS form anyway, and write in the reference bit "reference to be sent directly to universities" or similar. Then, make sure you have it as soon as you can.

    I rang up the uni to check that was ok and they said it was fine.

    Now my next problem is, because I've left this til the last of last minutes and UCAS send out the application numbers through the post, I need to get it tomorrow or else. Are they likely to get it to me by tomorrow, and if they don't can I get it over the phone?
