Can I send my application off without a reference - individual applicantWatch
I tried contacting my old college and all they could offer was to forward my query to 2 of the tutors who are still there from my time in 2015. They forwarded the email and since then I've sent numerous emails/phone calls trying to get a reference off of them with no luck, they don't seem to be interested.
I'm wondering what my chances are of being accepted into a foundation year course without attaching a reference onto my UCAS application and if anybody is familiar with or has done this in the past? What was your experience?
It's getting to the point where I am considering doing just that and just sending my application off. I have the necessary UCAS points and GCSEs. My personal statement is also pretty good. I'm just a little hesitant as I know you can't attach a reference to your application once you've sent it off and don't want to risk burning my application for this year only to get 5 rejections.
Thanks in advance.
Who's gonna give you a job without a reference from someone to say you're not a psychopath? Same for getting into university. Try getting a job without a reference and see what it's like...
There's a tick box on UCAS which allows you to submit without a reference so I was just curious.
Anyway I won't get too carried away as I was the one asking and I'm kind of answering my own question here.
