    Hi

    Im applying as an individual. Made a very last minute application. Unfortunately my tutor has not got back to me today in regards to providing me a reference. I have a already sent him a link to be able to attach a reference on my application. However no word of him accepting the link nor getting back to my emails.

    My question is is it possible for me to send off my application today and for my tutor to attach the reference in the last couple of days? Or will that not work?

    thanks a lot

    Your reference needs to be attached before UCAS sends your application to your universities, I believe. However, it is possible to send your UCAS off after the deadline today, but that just means that equal consideration will no longer apply to your application from the eyes of the universities.

    Deadline for the majority of undergraduate courses -15 January 2016
    Applications for the majority of courses should arrive at UCAS by 18:00 (UK time) today (check course details for the correct deadline). The reference has to be completed before your application can be sent to us.

    Go to your education institutions HE department / Senior staff member and get it sent before 18:00. No other choice, unless its an Arts & Design course.

    Unfortunately I had the same issue as you. I called all my choices and explained and they said that the course I was applying to was unlikely to fill up so it would be fine to send it in late with the reference.. I think most universities will consider even if it's late but you're not guaranteed because the people who sent before the deadline are offered places before you..
