    So last week I went to go on a BTEC course at college, they suggested starting the degree instead. So last week I had an interview and enrolled in a bit of a whirlwind!

    So I started my course on Monday and filled out my UCAS clearing form last week which I was told was just a process but that i had been accepted.

    So Ive just been waiting since last Wednesday for my referee to submit the reference so that I could send the final submit, all good so I thought!!

    So today my referee contacted me to say she was having issues signing in with the link UCAS sent last week.
    Then I realise that I can't log in either and that the deadline was yesterday!!!!!!!

    Ahhhhh does that mean my application is lost?? really worried it will effect my course and I'm going to be thrown off??

    What can I do, will talk to college in the morning but really stressing tonight!

    You need to phone UCAS but it might be no bad thing if you put in a more considered application this year in less of a rush.*

    It's up to the college to accept you or not UCAS. Just speak with your college and explain your referee is having a problem. Perhaps the referee can email it direct to the college...

    Eitherway, speak to your college in the morning. I'm sure it will all be fine.
