    I was just wondering, is it something they use to distinguish better candidates from the rest? It's just I am slightly annoyed with a few parts of my most recent one!!!

    Your school writes a reference for you and it's their choice what they put in it. So there's no clear answer for this. Having said that, the references are definitely not as important as other parts of the application process like your results, your interview and any admissions tests so it would have to be a pretty damning comment for it to have a significant impact.

    Apart from the reference your school writes, Oxford won't see anything.
