A few days ago my referee received an e-mail personally written from a UCL admissions tutor stating that my reference halts to an abrupt end mid sentence, and requested a hard copy of the reference in its entirety. She quoted the last line and there's a pretty hefty chunk of paragraph missing, which is essentially, the crux of the reference.

I'm rather annoyed as my tutor and I cut the reference together to fit it in that poor excuse of a space UCAS have provided and it was ok then. So why has it cut a section out? Is there a glitch in the system or what...?

Now I know I'm asking the obvious here, but does this mean all my other universities have received the incomplete version also? I asked my teacher to post a hard copy to them also to be on the safe side, but she claims that they "probably have their own processing system" whatever the hell that means.

By the way, I received an offer from one of my options a couple of weeks ago. Did they accept me with an incomplete reference? It was from one of my (last resort) insurance options if that makes somewhat of a difference.

Quite a long post, apologies. I needed to vent too.

how long was your reference, the poor excuse of a space from what i recall PQ saying is about the same size as ure allowed for rue PS which should be fine for ure reference lol.

and yes they probably have got ure incomplete ref, ure best bet to make sure is to ring UCAS as they will see it all and will tell you what they have and then you can work from there and see if all ure unis need to be sent ure reference via hard copy.

Actually, when I tried to print off my entire application just for a hard copy as a record, it left a LOT of blank pages where certain sections should have continued - it did this twice, too. I didn't pursue it but now I'm kind of worried!
