    I am currently studying a level 3 diploma in art and wish to apply to UCAS Independantly. My tutors have said they will give me references so that part is fine. My problem is the part on the application (when you have made your account) where it says "Are you applying independently?" which i tick and then it says "Are you currently at a school or college?" which of course I tick. It then comes up with a box that says "Please go back and tick school or college" instead of independently.

    What do I do?

    What do I do?
    Apply through your college. If your college is supplying your reference, there is no reason at all to apply independently. There is no advantage and it just makes life difficult for no reason.
