    Hey guys
    I am taking a gap year right now and the results this summer for my alevel(as&a2) wasn't as great as expected so i have decided to retake some of my modules. The thing is i am retaking history and i heard that i have to get predicts from my history teacher at my previous sixth form college but i am not in such a good relationship with the teacher and i am doubtful that the teacher will give me any better predicts. (I understand in a way for not giving good predicts but i am willing to get my heads down this time) So my question is since i am entering as a individual candidate(i think?) is it possible for me to write my own predicts or do i have to receive predicts from my teacher at previous sixth form? Thanks a lot

    Whoever you nominate as your reference will be asked to enter predictions.

    Not quite. UCAS has guidelines:
